Ham and Eggs at the Front is a 1927 American silent comedy film directed by Roy Del Ruth and starring Tom Wilson, Heinie Conklin and Myrna Loy - all in blackface.[1] The film was released with a Vitaphone synchronized soundtrack with a music score and sound effects. Long thought to be a lost film, a print was screened at the Pordenone Silent Film Festival in 2021 courtesy of the Cineteca Italiana.
