The Blonde Saint is a 1926 American silent romantic-adventure film directed by Svend Gade. It was produced by Sam E. Rork and released through First National Pictures. Lewis Stone and Doris Kenyon star and young newcomer Gilbert Roland is featured.
The plot of the film bears a striking resemblance to the plot of the Warner Brothers talkie, One Way Passage (1932). This silent appears to have been more exotic.
