" A Daughter of The Poor 1917 Lost Film "
2 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This lost 1917 silent film starred Bessie Love, with the story scenario written by Anita Loos. The film was produced by Fine Art Films Company and distributed by the Triangle Film Corporation, and released on March 18, 1917. Directed by Edward Dillon, Bessie Love plays Rose Eastman, an orphan who lives with her slothful Uncle Joe ( Max Davidson ). He works as a janitor in a publishing house for James Stevens ( Carl Stockdale ). Lacking self-esteem and education , Uncle Joe and Rose are easily influenced by the socialist ideas of writer Rudolph Creig ( George Beranger ) who convinces them that the rich are evil. One day Rose meets Steven's son Jack ( Roy Stewart ) while he is working on his car, which leads her to believe he is a common laborer, she begins to see him. After being with him, Rose begins to realize the rich are not such a abominable lot, a conclusion Rudolph has also reached after learning Stevens has published his book and now a hefty royalty check is awaiting him. Because of his substantial earnings, Rudolph is able to marry Rose. Sadly this is another loss for silent cinema and those who appreciate the delightful actress, Bessie Love.
