Sorrell and Son

Country: USA

Genre: Drama



Stephen Sorrell (H.B. Warner) raises his son Kit (Mickey McBan) alone after Kit's mother deserts husband and child in the boy's infancy. Sorrell, forced to take work as a menial, finds that both his dignity and his health are damaged by the exhausting labour and harsh treatment he receives as a hotel porter. But he thrives on the knowledge that his son will benefit from his labours. Then, one day, the mother, whom Sorrell had allowed his boy to believe was dead, shows up again...


  • Based on the 1925 novel of the same name by Warwick Deeping, which was a bestseller throughout the late twenties and thirties.
  • The only known surviving copy of this film was found by the Academy Film Archive, in some state of deterioration, and missing its last reel. The Academy was able to partially restore the print, which was premiered in 2005.
  • The story was remade twice, once in 1933, with H.B. Warner again in the role of the father, and with Peter Penrose as Kit; and a second time in 1984 as a British television miniseries.
