Description by OLDIES.com:
A shockingly brutal war melodrama, The Spirit of the U.S.A. is the work of the unusual mother-and-son team of Emilia and Emory Johnson. A working actor in the teens and twenties, Emory started getting his mother jobs as a scenarist in Hollywood beginning with The Sea Lion (1921), in which he starred with Hobart Bosworth. The following year Emory moved into directing, eventually making 13 films, almost all of which were written by his mother. This is probably the only instance of such a maternal collaboration in film history. Leading man Johnnie Walker was a busy silent era actor best remembered for Wine Of Youth (1924), Lightning Reporter (1926) and The Matinee Idol (1928).
BONUS: The Doughboy: Bumbling infantryman 'Snub' Pollard is released upon the Kaiser's hordes in this uproarious comedic take on World War I. Directed by James Davis.
