Virtue Is Its Own Reward (1914) -- Lost Silent
25 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Annie ( Pauline Bush ) works in a local canning factory to earn money to care for her sister Alice ( Gertrude Brambrick ). Unknown to Annie, Alice is engaged to Seadey Swaine ( Tom Forman ), the son of a wealthy business man. Alice ignores Annie's advice and takes a job at the canning factory to earn enough money to purchase a suitable wedding trousseau. In the factory, Alice meets Duncan Bronson ( Lon Chaney ), a department manager who has an disreputable reputation. Bronson takes a fancy to Alice, and she does not listen to Annie's warnings about his character. One day, Annie comes in with a new dress that she has managed to buy with the money she works so hard to save. Bronson ignores Alice and turns his attentions to Annie. Alice marries Swaine and, the danger past, Annie returns to her plain clothes. Everyone gossips about Annie, but she is content knowing she has saved her sister from an unpleasant fate.

"Rather a pathetic story, in which Pauline Busch and Lon Chaney play the leads." - Motion Picture News

This 1914 silent drama was produced by the Rex Motion Picture Company. Sadly it now remains a lost silent film.
