    "Just Suppose" is a drama and romance starring Richard Barthelmess and Lois Moran. A distant heir to a European monarchy, who is free to marry at will, falls in love with an American girl. Then he suddenly becomes first in line for the throne and must marry a woman from royal circles.
    On January 18, 1926 The New York Times published a review of the film by its movie columnist Mordaunt Hall, who was notoriously short of praise in his articles. Here is what he wrote:
    "A wholesome, sympathetic and often amusing picture has been fashioned from A. B. Thomas's play, "Just Suppose". The story is admirably suited to Mr. Barthelmess's youth, ability and good looks. It is through a golf ball striking Linda Lee Stafford that he meets the girl who captures his young heart. She is portrayed by little Lois Moran, the young actress, who won film fame through her brilliant performance in "Stella Dallas." And it might just as well be said here and now that her acting in "Just Suppose" is worthy of the highest praise. She is restrained and yet she reflects joy and sadness as naturally as if the affaire de coeur were one in which she, herself, was vitally interested. Her prolonged conversation with the Prince is a most appealing sequence, in which Mr. Barthelmess rises to the occasion."
