Ready Money ( 1914 ) -- Lost Silent
30 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Steve Baird ( Edward Abeles ) goes West, and with miner Mike Reardon ( Theodore Roberts ), buys an abandoned mine called The Skyrocket. Hoping to raise money to cover his notes, Steve goes to New York where he meets forger Jackson Ives ( James Neill ). Ives gives Steve $50,000 in counterfeit money for stock in the mine just before the notes are due. When Grace Tyler ( Bessie Barriscale ) and other wealthy friends see the money they also buy stock, believing that Steve is a success. Meanwhile, neighboring mine owner James Morgan ( Frederick Montague ) discovers that The Skyrocket contains gold, and he sets off an explosion, hoping to kill Mike before he discovers it. Instead of killing Mike, the explosion uncovers the gold and everyone becomes wealthy, including Ives who now has the money to make his forgeries good. At the end Ives is best man at Steve and Grace's wedding.

This 1914 western/comedy/drama was produced by the Jesse L. Lasky Feature Play Company, starring Edward Abeles, Bessie Barriscale, Monroe Salisbury and Frederick Montague. Sadly, Ready Money now remains a lost silent film.
