The Strong Man was the first feature film of the legendary Director, Frank Capra. The movie starred Harry Langdon, Priscilla Bonner, Gertrude Astor, Brooks Benedict, Arthur Thalasso, Robert McKim and William V. Mong. Harry Langdon played a WWI veteran who comes to America in search of the girl he corresponded with during the war. The movie received very good reviews as did the star, Harry Langdon.
