Mrs. Sidney Belgradin ( Julia Swayne Gordon ), an extravagant widow,
refuses to consent to the marriage of her daughter Agnes ( Anita
Stewart ) to struggling physician Loring Brent ( E. K. Lincoln ). Her
interception of their letters causes each to believe that the other has
lost interest, so Agnes willingly accompanies her mother abroad to find
a rich husband. On her mother's insistence, Agnes marries wealthy
Australian wheat magnate Geoffrey Marshe ( Harry T. Morey ) who
apparently perishes along with Mrs. Belgradin when his yacht capsizes.
Returning to America, Agnes discovers her mother's deception and is
reconciled with Loring, whom she marries and with whom she has a son.
Five years later, their happiness is interrupted by the appearance of
Monsieur de la Mer, a patient of Loring's who suffers from amnesia.
Agnes recognizes him as Marshe and begs her husband not to restore his
memory through a brain operation. Despite her pleas, Loring performs
the operation but Marshe dies of shock.
This 1914 silent romance/drama was based on a stage play Agnes by Gladys Rankin, produced by The Vitagraph Company of America, directed by Ralph Ince and starring silent screen actress Anita Stewart. The survival status of A Million Bid is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
