The Missing Links (1916) - Lost Silent
15 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sadly this 1916 silent drama is now a lost film. The only information I could find is this original review to share with the reader.

Review from Moving Picture World, January 8, 1916 THE MISSING LINKS - The cast: Norma Talmadge, Robert Harron, Thomas Jefferson, Elmer Clifton, William Higby, Jack Brammall, Constance Talmadge. How life seethes and boils at times even in a peaceful little town is recounted in this photoplay. As a background for stirring events are shown views of the quiet Main street, typical of a rural community and interiors of a church during a service and of the homes of the tranquil inhabitants.

But love and finance inject action into the serene atmosphere. A regular feud is started against the banker and his two sons by the justice of peace, because one of the banker's sons, Robert Harron, elopes with the justice's stepdaughter, Norma Talmadge. The justice seizes an opportunity to wreak his ill-will against the banker. A rumor is started that the bank is insolvent and the depositors withdraw their money till finally the doors have to be closed. The justice is appointed receiver and leads an angry crowd to the banker's house. He is finally admitted to the house and is shown the body of the banker, who has died from the shock of disappointment. His charges of dishonesty madden Harron and he threatens to kill the justice. Things come to a climax of intensity with the death of the justice and Harron is arrested on a charge of murder.

Through an amateur detective, the bank cashier is proved to be responsible for the murder of the justice by an incriminating cuff-link found near the body. Harron is released and cleared of the accusation just as a mob breaks into the jail bent on lynching him.
