The Man Trap (1917) -- Lost Silent ?
16 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Framed by police inspector Finch ( Frank MacQuarrie ) and his managing editor R.H. Steadman ( Mark Fenton ) to cover up their own crooked work, reporter John Mull ( Herbert Rawlinson ) languishes in prison until he escapes, determined to wreak vengeance. In Mull's absence, his sweetheart, Bess Miller ( Sally Starr ), has been dating Burton Grange ( Jack Nelson ) with whom she plans to elope. When Grange has an altercation with Steadman, in the scuffle, Steadman is knocked unconscious. Grange flees and is arrested for Steadman's murder but escapes and encounters Mull, now a fugitive from justice. After persuading Grange to give himself up, Mull pays a visit to Finch and forces him to confess to Steadman's murder. With Finch's testimony, Mull is also vindicated of charges and is free to marry Bess.

This silent 1917 crime/drama was produced by The Universal Film Manufacturing Company. The status of the The Man Trap is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent.
