A Tragic Loss For Silent Cinema
14 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After an American diplomat in China is murdered, a Mandarin friend of the family raises Mignon ( Kittens Reichert, Mignon, as a child ) , his orphaned daughter. Mignon ( Violet Mersereau , Mignon grown up) yearns to return to America, making her easy prey for the slave trader Foo Shai ( Frank Smith ), who promises to take her to New York and then brutally mistreats her once they arrive. A young artist, Lawrence Demarest ( William Garwood ) , uses Mignon as a model and falls in love with her but is unable to free her from Foo Shai. Finally, finding Foo Shai abusing Mignon, the girl's friend, Chang ( Charles Fang ), kills the slave trader. Lawrence and Mignon can now plan their marriage, and they are also welcomed back by Lawrence's businessman father, who, several years before, had severed relations with his son for his refusal to make a living in the commercial world.

This 1916 silent drama was produced by the Universal Film Manufacturing Company with filming on locations at Fort Lee, New Jersey. Starring the popular actress Violet Mersereau, tragically it now remains a lost silent film.
