Three Hours Information

Three Hours is a 1927 American drama film based on the 1926 story Purple and Fine Linen by May Edginton. It was directed by James Flood and stars Corinne Griffith, who also served as executive producer.

The plot concerns a woman, Madeline Durkin (Griffith), who has lost all her wealth as well as her young daughter. Taking advantage of a stranger's kindness, she is apprehended for theft but asks for three hours leave to see her dying child.

Filmed in Los Angeles, the story is set in San Francisco. Nine years later, Edginton's story also provided the inspiration for the film Adventure in Manhattan. According to the website Silents Are Golden, a print of Three Hours survives at the George Eastman House in Rochester, New York.
