A Tragic Loss
29 March 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Camille ( Theda Bara ) , a model in a Paris modiste shop, is adopted by a member of nobility because she resembles his daughter. Although not accepted by the Parisian court, Camille meets and becomes the mistress of Count De Varville ( Walter Law ) who surrounds her with luxury. Camille's life is devoid of love, however, until she meets Armand Duvall ( Albert Roscoe ), a member of the Parisian nobility, who awakens the tenderness in her soul. Recognizing the immorality of the life she is leading, Camille consents to leave the city with Armand. When Armand's father learns of his son's misalliance, however, he pleads with Camille to give him up, claiming that his son's conduct is destroying his sister Celeste's ( Claire Whitney ) chance for happiness. Camille, moved by Duvall's pleas, returns to De Varville. She is followed by Armand who publicly denounces her. Later, as Camille is dying of consumption, Armand's father, conscience stricken, goes to his son and confesses that he was responsible for Camille's actions. Armand then hurries to Camille's apartment, where she dies in his arms.

This 1917 silent version of Camille produced by the Fox Film Corporation, starring Theda Bara, remains a tragic loss for fans of silent cinema.
