The High Sign (1917) - Lost ?
24 April 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In order to be admitted to his school fraternity, Donald Bruce ( Herbert Rawlinson ) is told to impersonate a Balkan prince. In that guise, Bruce leaves for the prince's tiny municipality. En route, he becomes involved with a gang of anarchists who order him to kill the prince he is supposed to be impersonating. After escaping from the anarchists, Bruce arrives at the Balkan state and learns that he is to marry a princess from a neighbouring land. Bruce willingly agrees to the ceremony when he learns that the princess is Hulda Maroff ( Brownie Vernon ), the college coed with whom he fell in love back home. After the marriage, the anarchists arrive to kill Bruce and his bride, but they escape. At that moment, the telephone rings and awakens Bruce from his dream. On the line is Hulda, calling for help. Bruce rounds up his college chums, goes to Hulda's rescue and the two are married.

This 1921 silent drama was produced by The Universal Film Manufacturing Company and starred Herbert Rawlinson. The survival status of The High Sign is now listed as unknown. This film should not be confused with the 1921 Buster Keaton comedy The High Sign.
