...Filmed in gritty Bowery locales and exploring the causes of crime in convincing detail...
USA Today
Sep 8, 1995

Product Description:

Filmed on location in the Bowery of New York before World War I, this silent feature is the first gangster movie about a hoodlum who is turned away from a life of crime by a beautiful social worker. Also includes a short called "The Police Force of New York City" filmed in 1910 and a newly recorded musical score, composed and performed by Philip Carli.

Plot Synopsis:

Filmed on location in the slums of the lower east side, "Regeneration" follows the story of a tough-as-nails orphan as he grows up alone on the unforgiving streets of New York City. Having spent his formative years running with a dangerous crowd of thugs and petty thieves, he becomes a prosperous, full-time criminal by the tender age of 25. But through the inspiration of Mamie Rose, the kind-hearted matron of a downtown mission, he eventually realizes that it's not too late for him to regain his lost innocence.

Production Notes:

  • REGENERATION was added to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 2000.
