Playing with Fire (1916) - Remains Lost
15 June 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Out of a job because of failing eyesight, Jean Servian ( Olga Petrova ), desperate for money, marries wealthy widower Geoffrey Vane ( Arthur Hoops ) after telling him that he must be satisfied with her gratitude rather than her love. Then, following an affair with artist Philip Derblay ( Pierre Le May ), who finally leaves her, Jean settles down to a quiet, boring life with Geoffrey, who knows nothing about her failed romance. Years later, however, after Lucille ( Evelyn Brent ), Geoffrey's daughter by his first wife, becomes engaged to Philip, Jean feels compelled to tell the story of her own affair with him. The disclosure has little effect as Lucille makes no change in her wedding plans, but then, when she breaks in on a violent argument between Philip and Lucille, Jean accidentally shoots and kills her former lover. A trial results in her acquittal, however, after which Jean realizes that she really does love Geoffrey, who easily forgives his wife for her past indiscretion.

This 1916 silent drama was produced by Popular Plays and Players, starring silent film actress Olga Petrova. Sadly, Playing with Fire now remains a lost film.
