Love's Old Sweet Song is a 1923 American two-reel short film made in the De Forest Phonofilm sound-on-film process. The film was directed by J. Searle Dawley and stars Louis Wolheim, Donald Gallaher, Ernest Hilliard, and Una Merkel in her film debut.
This was one of the few two-reel films produced by Lee de Forest in Phonofilm due to problems with changeovers when the film was projected in theaters. In June 1923, de Forest and the film's cinematographer Freeman Harrison Owens became embroiled in a legal battle over the Phonofilm process and patents.
