The Rogue Song is a 1930 romantic musical film. Directed by Lionel Barrymore and Hal Roach, the film is about singing bandit leader Yegor (Lawrence Tibbett) falling in love with Princess Vera (Catherine Dale Owen), only to take revenge on her after her brother rapes and kills his sister. In order to increase the film's box office appeal, eight Laurel and Hardy segments were included throughout the film.[1]


Despite rumors of a recovery, the last known print in its entirety was held in MGM Vault #7 and was destroyed in the fire on May 13th, 1967.[2] So far only seven segments have survived, including a dancing sequence, four Czech excerpts held in Prague, one with the Laurel and Hardy segments, and the film's trailer.[3]
