Welcome Home is a 1925 American silent comedy-drama film directed by James Cruze and starring Lois Wilson and Warner Baxter. It was produced by Famous Players-Lasky and distributed by Paramount Pictures.[1][2] The film is based on the 1924 Broadway play Minick by George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber.[3]


As described in a film magazine review,[4] Old Man Prouty goes to live with his son. There he becomes a general annoyance, prying into things unwittingly and spoiling plans for everyone. He finds other cronies at the Old Men's Home and, after learning that his son is to choose between him and the young wife, he goes to live at the Home.



A print of Welcome Home is preserved in the Library of Congress collection.[5][6]
