A Lost Lady (1924) - Unknown ?
15 September 2016 | by mpickfordfanSee all my reviews

Important note: This is not a film review. I hope to be able to find and add as many silent film synopsis of films that have a survival status of unknown or presumed lost. I try to do as much research as I can and it is not my intention to deceive anyone, for sometimes the film does exist and some presumed lost films are still being discovered. I am more than delighted if someone has knowledge of a film listed as lost but survives, as I wish all silent films did survive. I hope the reader enjoys this brief synopsis.

Married to Captain Forrester ( George Fawcett ), a wealthy railroad tycoon considerably older than herself, beautiful and frustrated Marian Forrester ( Irene Rich ) runs off with Frank Ellinger ( John Roche ), who promises to marry her after she obtains a divorce. Marian then discovers that the captain has bankrupted himself trying to save a workingman's bank, and she returns to him out of loyalty; but when she later hears that Ellinger, who she thought would wait for her, is about to be married to someone else, she attempts to go to him. Delayed by a storm, she misses her train and goes instead to the home of Neil Herbert ( Matt Moore ), an old friend and admirer. She calls Ellinger from there and is bluntly rejected. Sometime later, when the captain succumbs to old age and sorrow, Neil takes her in permanently. Marian begins to drink too much and becomes slovenly, but Neil continues to help her until, finding her affectionate with a low country fellow, he disgustedly leaves her. Years later, Neil discovers that she is living in South America, apparently happy and still beautiful, the wife of an aged Latin millionaire.

This 1924 silent drama was based from the novel A Lost Lady by Willa Cather, produced by Warner Brothers Pictures, starring Irene Rich and Matt Moore. The survival status of A Lost Lady (1924) is listed in the American Silent Feature Film Database as; No holdings located in archives.
