The Charmer (1917) - Lost Film

Author: PamelaShort from Canada
6 February 2015

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Sweet little Ambrosia Lee ( Ella Hall ) despite the heart-breaking tragedy of losing both her parents in the war, she keeps her cheery disposition by helping soothe the sorrows that she sees around her. She soon must turn her talents to try and save her Aunt and Uncle's ending marriage. Ambrosia Lee utilizes all her charms and finally convinces Aunt Charlotte ( Belle Bennett ) to reconcile with her Uncle, and a happy ending prevails for all, when at the divorce proceeding, Charlotte rushes into her husband's arms.

The Charmer starred the young actress, Ella Hall, a delicate blonde beauty who was the understudy for Mary Pickford, while on stage with the company of David Belasco for the play "The Warrens of Virginia". She entered films in 1910 as a fifteen-year old ingénue with D.W. Griffith at Biograph and then moved to Reliance Studios. While at Reliance Studios she was one of the first actors to work in Kinemacolor, one of the first attempts to film in colour. By 1915, she had become one of the hottest box-office stars, triumphing for the Universal Film Manufacturing Company. Sadly, she is now all but forgotten and the loss of this film only adds to the tragedy of this delightful early silent film star's obscurity.
