Yes, that is the march/title from the Paramount picture of the same name.
Gaylord Carter's "The Golden Age Of Silent Movies" (RCA LPM/LSP 2560 credits
Hugo Riesenfeld with no mention of Zamecnik.

I have a match for this on black label Victor 22096-B, by the Victor Concert
Band directed by Rosario Bourdon under the title "The Mill in the Forest".
Composer credit is Richard Eilenberg.  The other side is "Monastery Bells"
