The Plunderer (1915) - Lost Silent ?
24 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Bill Matthews ( William Farnum ) heads West with his partner, Dick Townsend ( Harry Spingler ), to take charge of their mine, the Croix D'Or, but upon their arrival in the mining town of Goldpan, they discover that several rivals have been attempting to seize control of the mine. Unknown to both owners, Bully Presby ( William Riley Hatch ), who owns the adjacent property, is tapping a low level of the mine and promoting a strike among the miners. After Dick and Joan Presby ( Claire Whitney ), Bully's daughter, fall in love, however, Joan forces her father to confess his plundering, refund the money and leave the Croix D'Or owners in peace. Meanwhile, Bill gives his heart to dance hall owner Lily Meredith ( Elizabeth Eyre ), who, ashamed of her profession, vanishes from the mining camp. Undaunted, Bill departs Goldpan determined to find and marry her.

This 1915 silent western/drama was based on the novel The Plunderer by Roy Norton, produced by the Fox Film Corporation, starring William Farnum and Claire Whitney. The survival status of this film is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent.
