The Dancing Girl (1915) - Lost Silent
17 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Drusilla Ives ( Florence Reed ) leaves her community of solemn Quakers on the Isle of Endellion to become the London servant of the profligate Duke of Guiseberry ( Eugene Ormonde ), the Lord of her village. She thrives on the lively London night life, and after the duke discovers her dancing talent, he helps her to become a professional dancer. Soon she is Diana Valrose, London's favorite dancer, slightly jaded by the attention lavished upon her. When her father ( Fuller Mellish ) and Quaker sweetheart, John Christison ( William Russell ) , find her consumed by ambition, her father's curse causes her to faint and fall from a steep staircase. Christison marries Drusilla's sister Faith ( Lorraine Huling ) , and after the duke refuses to make Drusilla his duchess, she later refuses his proposal after he is ruined financially. Drusilla returns to Endellion, where she meets the duke again, on the lonely rocky coast, and instead of both committing suicide, which each had planned to do, they marry and begin a new life.

This 1915 silent drama was directed by Allan Dwan for the Famous Players Film Company. It starred stage actress Florence Reed in her film debut and her husband, Malcolm Williams, also appeared in the film. Sadly it now remains a lost silent film.
