The Dream Girl (1916) - Lost Silent ?
16 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Con artist "English" Hal ( Charles West ) poses as a British aristocrat to weasel his way into the wealthy Merton household, while Meg Dugan ( Mae Murray ), whose father works with Hal, escapes from the juvenile hall next door and is also taken in by the Mertons. Always having been infatuated by Arthurian legends, Meg falls instantly in love when she meets young Tom Merton ( Earle Foxe ) whom she sees as Sir Galahad. Meanwhile, Hal has his sights set on Tom's sister Alice ( Mary Mersch ) and successfully courts her until Meg exposes him. For revenge, Hal produces Meg's father, who says that the Mertons can keep his daughter if they agree to pay him for her. Outraged, Tom's grandfather sends both Dugans from his home, but later, realizing that Meg and Tom really do love each other, he relents and allows the couple to marry.

This 1916 silent drama was produced by the Jesse L. Lasky Feature Play Company and starred the popular actress Mae Murray. Sadly it now remains a lost silent film.
