Smilin' Through is a play by Jane Cowl and Jane Murfin. Ms. Cowl also starred in the play and co-directed it. It was first filmed in 1922, and was remade twice by MGM, in 1932 and in 1941. In 1932, it was also made into an unsuccessful Broadway operetta, Through the Years, with music by Vincent Youmans. The title song of the operetta, however, became a hit.

The 1922 version of Smilin' Through starred Norma Talmadge, Wyndham Standing and Harrison Ford (no relation to the star of the Indiana Jones films).

Lyrics:

There's a little brown road windin' over the hill
To a little white cot by the sea
There's a little green gate
At whose trellis I wait
While two eyes o' blue
Come smilin' through at me

There's a gray lock or two in the brown of the hair
There's some silver in mine too, I see
But in all the long years
When the clouds brought their tears
Those two eyes o' blue
Kept smilin' through at me

And if ever I'm left in this world all alone
I shall wait for my call patiently
For if Heaven be kind
I shall wait there to find
Those two eyes o' blue
Come smilin' through at me
