Heart and Soul (1917) -- A Tragic Loss
31 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Since the death of her mother, Jess ( Theda Bara ) has always had the care of her younger sister Bess ( Claire Whitney ) as her primary consideration. Years later, the two sisters are living with their uncle on his plantation in Puerto Rico when they meet John Neil ( Harry S. Hilliard ), who immediately falls in love with Jess. Upon realizing that Bess is in love with the same man, Jess sacrifices her own happiness for that of her sister. Soon after, Drummond ( Walter Law ), a corrupt planter, starts a revolution against the United States government, and in the ensuing war the plantation and all its inhabitants are captured. Jess escapes and rides to the American garrison for aid, but during the fight she is mortally wounded. Her dying words are a blessing upon Neil and her sister Bess.

This 1917 silent romance/drama was based on the 1887 novel Jess, by H. Rider Haggard and produced by the Fox Film Corporation and filmed at the Fox Studio in Fort Lee, New Jersey. Starring Theda Bara and Claire Whitney, tragically it now remains a lost silent film.
