Nearly Married (1917) - Lost Silent ?
16 September 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Betty Griffon ( Madge Kennedy ) delays her wedding to Harry Lindsey ( Frank M. Thomas ) because her brother Dick ( Richard Barthelmess ) is late for the ceremony. Upon learning that her dear brother has been injured in an accident, Betty refuses to leave on her honeymoon until he has recovered. When Harry objects, Betty proclaims that he is insensitive and demands a divorce. To oblige his wife, Harry hires his friend Tom Robinson ( Mark Smith ) to testify as corespondent in a divorce case, and a separation is granted. Betty and Harry realize that they really love each other too late and decide to remarry, but are prevented from doing so by the divorce papers which forbids Harry from marrying again. They finally decide to circumvent the New York law by becoming really married in New Jersey, and all ends happily.

This 1917 silent comedy was based on the play Nearly Married by Edgar Selwyn, produced by the Goldwyn Pictures Corporation, starring Madge Kennedy, Frank M. Thomas and Richard Barthelmess. The survival status of Nearly Married is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
