Marie Doro's Debut Film
14 February 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Carlotta ( Marie Doro ), an English baby orphaned in Turkey when her parents are killed, is brought up in a harem as the foster daughter of Hamdi ( Russell Bassett ), the chief of police. When Hamdi prepares to sell her to a wealthy old man, Carlotta rebels and is put in prison. She escapes with Harry Pelligrew ( J.W. Austin ), a young Englishman, and travels to England, where destitute, she wanders into the gardens of Marcus Ordeyne ( Eugene Ormonde ), a book-lover and philosopher. Marcus allows her to remain at his home, despite the wishes of his aunt and cousin, who are embarrassed by Carlotta's upbringing and lack of social manners. Marcus himself is embarrassed when Carlotta expresses her appreciation by kissing him. Although Marcus' aunt wants him to marry her daughter, now that he has inherited a fortune, he objects. Hamdi arrives to claim Carlotta, and hires Marcus' supposed friend Pasquale ( Julian L'Estrange ) to abduct her. After Pasquale's auto crashes and he dies, Marcus realizes that he loves Carlotta, whereupon he announces that they are to be married.

This silent drama was Marie Doro's film debut and was based on a 1905 novel by William John Locke, The Morals of Marcus Ordeyne, first producing a Broadway play in 1907, also starring Marie Doro. The film version was directed by Edwin S. Porter and Hugh Ford for the Famous Players Film Company and distributed by Paramount Pictures and released on January 18, 1915. Tragically this 100 year old film is now lost
