My Lady's Slipper (1916) - Lost Silent ?
25 September 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

During the late 1700's, Lieutenant Francis Burnham ( Earle Williams ), an American newly arrived in Paris, promptly accumulates a huge gambling debt to the Marquis du Tremignon ( Harry Northrup ), whose recent attempt to kidnap the Countess Gabrielle de Villars ( Anita Stewart ) was ruined by the intervention of a stranger. Tremignon now believes that he can force Gabrielle to marry him by compromising her, so he offers to remove the debt if Francis will bring him an article of the countess' clothing. Francis, who thinks that Gabrielle loves Tremignon, agrees. Then, when he comes to her room, she recognizes him as the stranger who saved her from the kidnapping, and tells him of her hatred for Tremignon. Gabrielle gives him her slipper, however, to placate Tremignon temporarily, but afterward, Francis denounces the marquis, for which authorities throw him in jail. Both the countess and American ambassador Benjamin Franklin ( Charles Chapman ) come to his aid, however, after which he is pardoned by the King Louis XVI ( Joseph Kilgour ) and then marries Gabrielle.

This 1916 silent drama was produced by the The Vitagraph Company of America, starring popular actress Anita Stewart. As with many silent films the survival status of My Lady's Slipper is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it is now lost.
