Marguerite Clark's Second Film Considered Lost
25 August 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The Crucible was Marguerite Clark's second silent film and is now considered lost. It was directed by Edwin S.Porter for Famous Players Film Company and distributed by Paramount Pictures, released on December 14, 1914. Starring Broadway actress Marguerite Clark and Harold Lockwood, it was a romantic drama about a young girl, Jean ( Marguerite Clark ) who is brought up as a boy by her father, when he dies, her boyish manner causes her quite a lot of anguish. Her mother and sisters find her behaviour offensive and soon the hapless girl ends up in a reformatory. She escapes but her problems are far from over, however along the way she meets Craig Atwood ( Harold Lockwood ) an artist, and Jean goes through a series of trials to prove she is worthy of his love. The Crucible remains a tragic loss for fans of this very talented actress and for those who are interested in the art of early silent cinema.
