Sad Loss for Silent Cinema
14 March 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

La Syrena ( Alice Brady ) is an aerial dancer whose jealous husband kills her while she performs in midair. Her daughter, Jennie Raeburn ( Alice Brady ), soon orphaned, grows up unaware of her mother's occupation, but nonetheless feels the urge to dance. She makes a successful stage debut and gets caught up in the social world of the theatre. A cousin from the country, Zachary Trewehella ( Holbrook Blinn ), who has always loved Jennie, disapproves of her sudden obsession with wealth and status, but Jennie ignores his warnings. As a result, she has a disastrous affair with a society man, and realizes that her cousin was correct. In the end, bitter over her last affair, she unenthusiastically marries Zachary, but soon falls in love with him.

This 1916 silent drama was based from the novel Carnival by Compton Mackenzie, produced by William A. Brady Picture Plays, starring Alice Brady. Sadly, The Ballet Girl now remains a lost silent film.
