Aristocracy (1914) - Lost Silent Film ?
3 March 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When wealthy San Francisco railroad magnate Jefferson Stockton's ( Tyrone Power ) daughter Virginia ( Edna Mayo ) becomes engaged to Stuyvesant Lawrence ( William Rosell ), the son of an old aristocratic New York family, Mr. Lawrence goes West to stop the wedding. When Lawrence refuses to consent to the marriage, Stockton implores Virginia to accompany him and his young wife Diana ( Marguerite Skirvin ) to England where he has rented an estate. Virginia and Stuyvesant write to each other, but Mrs. Lawrence intercepts their letters. Virginia then marries fortune-hunting Prince Emil von Haldenwald ( Arthur Hoops ), thinking that Stuyvesant is engaged to someone else. On her wedding night, Virginia learns that Stuyvesant has been faithful to her and is in Europe. She and Emil stay at her father's house until one evening, while Stockton is away, Emil enters Diana's bedroom and tries to rape her. When Stockton arrives, he throws Emil out and the latter is killed in a quarrel over debts. Eventually, Stuyvesant and Virginia are reunited and the new European social position of the Stocktons makes them acceptable to the Lawrences.

This 1914 silent drama was based from the play Aristocracy by Bronson Howard and produced by the Famous Players Film Company, starring Tyrone Power Sr. in his film debut. The survival status of Aristocracy is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
