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).
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
