Tragic Loss For Silent Cinema
30 June 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Naïve Vera Herbert ( Theda Bara ) has lived her simple life at an English school, and goes to visit her unprincipled mother, Lady Dolly ( Marie Curtis ), who is openly living with Lord Jura ( Glen White). The moral indifference she finds drives her to the quiet haunts of the sea shore, where she meets and falls in love with Lucien Correze ( Harry Hilliard ), an opera singer. But Lady Dolly, a notorious social climber, has a different idea for her daughter and has arranged that she marry Prince Zuroff ( Walter Law ) of Russia. Vera obeys, and soon discovers that her husband is keeping his mistress, Duchess De Sonnaz ( Callie Torres ), under the same roof. A scene follows in which the prince banishes his wife to a Russian monastery where she is followed by Correze and Lord Jura. Correze entreats Vera to go with him, and she is about to succumb to his impassioned plea when the prince enters the room. Words are followed by a duel in which the prince and Lord Jura are killed, freeing Vera to marry Correze, the man she loves.

This 1917 drama was based on the 1880 novel Moths by Ouida, and produced by the Fox Film Corporation, with filming locations at Fort Lee, New Jersey. Starring Theda Bara, it was advertised as, A picturization showing Theda Bara in a role depicting a girl's love sacrificed for a mother's ambition. Tragically, Her Greatest Love remains a lost silent film.
