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

As wealthy playboy Bertie Joyce ( John Barrymore ) returns from his bachelor party, some thugs knock him out and rob him. After he regains consciousness, a now-amnesiac Bertie wanders into a saloon, where a band of crooks takes him in and trains him to be a gentleman burglar. The papers report Bertie's disappearance, and also dwell on the grief of his fiancée, Dorothy Hardin ( Katherine Harris ), now laden with wedding gifts but with no one to marry. The crooks decide to steal the gifts, but when they arrive at Dorothy's, Bertie, still remembering nothing, nonetheless instinctively saves his sweetheart from the thieves' assault. The gang runs away from Bertie, and then a doctor tells Dorothy that a simple operation will restore her fiancé's memory. After the surgery, Bertie still cannot recall his brief criminal interlude, but he is healthy enough to remember Dorothy and to marry her.

This 1916 comedy/drama was from the short story "Man Who Was Lost," produced by the Famous Players Film Company and directed by James Kirkwood. Starring John Barrymore, tragically The Lost Bridegroom remains a lost silent film.
