The Desire of the Moth (1917) -- Lost Silent Western
While running away from the authorities, Christopher Foy ( Monroe Salisbury ) is injured during his escape and finds safety at the mountain cabin of Colonel Vorhis ( W. H. Bainbridge ) and his daughter Stella ( Ruth Clifford ). Stella feels compassion for Foy, and the Colonel, admiring Foy's confession of guilt, takes steps to have him pardoned. He and Stella fall in love and Foy remains sincere, but when he is accused of cattle stealing, he again runs away. When John Wesley Pringle ( Rupert Julian ), who also loves Stella, learns that Foy is innocent but is the object of a conspiracy, he helps Foy by uncovering the plot. Despite his love for Stella, Pringle helps to prove that Foy is innocent so that Stella can find happiness with the man she loves.
This 1917 western/drama was produced by Universal Film Manufacturing Company and starred the popular actress Ruth Clifford. Sadly this silent film is now presumed lost.
