Armstrong's Wife (1915) - Lost Silent ?
13 March 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Harvey Arnold ( James Cruze ), a gambler who flees San Francisco for a small country town during a reform movement, captures the affections of May Fielding ( Edna Goodrich ). She elopes and marries Harvey, despite the pleas of her childhood sweetheart, David Armstrong ( Thomas Meighan ), who leaves broken-hearted for the Canadian Northwest. In the city, when May discovers Arnold's occupation, he promises to quit, but after his partner, Jack Estabrook ( Hal Clements ), arranges a police raid so that he can have May, Arnold kills him. When Arnold flees, May learns that he is still married to another woman. After May loses a job as a model for rejecting the advances of a buyer, David, who learns from a newspaper of Arnold's crime, arrives and persuades May, who says that she is through with marriage and men, to return to his homestead as his wife "in name only." Later, Arnold finds the couple and May protects him from the mounted police. Arnold demands to take May back, and wounds David. As May threatens suicide, the police arrive and kill the fleeing Arnold. May's concern over David's wound turns into love for him.

This 1915 drama was produced by the Jesse L. Lasky Feature Play Company and starred Edna Goodrich and Thomas Meighan. The survival status of Armstrong's Wife is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
