A Night of Thrills ( 1914 ) -- Lost Silent
3 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Howard Wild ( Charles Manley ), a kindly old gentleman, always acted as a peacemaker for his young niece Hazel ( Pauline Bush ) and her fiancé Jack ( William C. Dowlan ), and he bequeathed them his old mansion as a wedding gift. A few days before the wedding, Hazel hears some unpleasant gossip about Jack, they quarrel, and she flees to the mansion to be alone. While she is there, crooks arrive to rob the house and Hazel watches them, helpless and terrified. When they are not looking, she runs for the door, but just then Jack enters, and in the dark, thinking him another burglar, screams and faints. The burglars flee, thinking the house haunted. Jack revives Hazel, but they will still not patch up their misunderstanding until the ghost of Howard Wild appears before them and again acts as peacemaker. The two return home to be married.

This 1914 short drama/comedy was produced by the Rex Film Company and starred Pauline Bush, William C. Dowlan, Charles Manley and Lon Chaney. Sadly, A Night of Thrills now remains a lost film.
