For Cash (1915) -- Lost Film
26 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Having been brought up in seclusion by her reclusive father Amos ( Lon Chaney ), Vera Ronceval ( Pauline Bush ) meets Arthen Owen ( Jack Warren Kerrigan ), an artist, and they fall in love. When Amos learns of their romance, he forbids Arthen to see his daughter, and in his excitement, suffers a heart attack. His dying wish is that Vera be given to the custody of her cousin, Mr. Ronceval, an attorney. He takes Vera away to his home in the city, and Arthen, unable to find his sweetheart, falls into a dissipated lifestyle. Broke, Arthen agrees to paint pictures for Lee Varick ( Billy Quinn ), a disreputable "artist" who signs his name to the work of others. Mr. Ronceval is a friend of Varick's and decides he would be a suitable match for Vera; she reluctantly consents to the engagement. Vera sees Arthen one day, and despite his fall from grace, tells him that she still loves him. Arthen, with a new lease on life, goes to Varick to return his latest check, when he hears screams from the man's apartment. He breaks in to find Vera, who went to break her engagement, being assaulted by Varick. Arthen knocks Varick down and rescues Vera. When her cousin learns of Varick's evil deeds, he consents to Vera marrying Arthen.

"This is very conventional and not particularly attractive in settings. The principals are interesting, but their work furnishes the chief strength of the production." - Moving Picture World

This 1915 short silent drama was directed by Lon Chaney and produced by the Victor Film Company. Sadly it now remains a lost silent film.
