Mountain Justice (1915) -- Lost Silent
26 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Angus McDonald ( Arthur Shirley ) and Jeffry Kirke ( Lon Chaney ) are partners in a moonshine business. Angus is slow and cautious, while Jeffry is hot-headed and is horribly cruel to his wife Mary ( Elsie Jane Wilson ). Nora Davison ( Grace Thompson ) is in love with Angus, but he shows no interest in her, instead, he is in love with his partner's wife. One day Kirke strikes his wife and knocks her unconscious, and Nora has to prevent Angus from killing the man. Mary decides to leave her husband. Kirke is tipped off that revenue offers are going to raid his still. He prepares an ambush in which one of the officers is killed. Angus professes his love to Mary, but she tells him that she still only loves her husband. Angus captures Kirke and turns him over the revenuers, thinking this to be a convenient way to rid himself of his rival. The mountaineers learn of Angus' betrayal of his partner and plan to hang him. Nora arrives and plead's for his life. She is assisted by her father who holds the men at gunpoint until they disperse. Angus finally realizes his true love for Nora.

"The plot is somewhat conventional...but it is given a strong handling and contains much that is new and interesting. The characterizations are good and the acting better than usual in this type of story." -- Moving Picture World

Sadly this 1915 silent drama is now a lost film.
