Main title is missing. "Das Dorf in der Großstadt" is the title given on the can. The existing material comprises intertitles 118 - 150. From the style it could correspond to an American production from around 1925.

David is absolute correct in all his identifications. To these I can add: in image 1, man at far left behind table is Billy Bevan, main in light suit in foreground right is George O'Hara. O'Hara is also in image 5. Man in image 7 is Robert Cain. Images 17-22, woman is Ethel Grey Terry.

Also, I believe the man in the center left foreground of image 1 (next to Bevan, but with a gap between them) is Ben Deely.
