The Forbidden Path (1918) -- Lost Silent
31 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Mary Lynde ( Theda Bara ) agrees to pose as a Madonna for Greenwich Village artist Felix Benavente ( Sidney Mason ) and soon becomes romantically involved with his wealthy friend, Robert Sinclair ( Hugh Thompson ). Robert lives with Mary for a time, but turns her out when their child is born. Although a poor family pities her and takes her in, the baby grows sick and dies. Several years later, Felix finds Mary living in a Tenderloin dive and asks her to model for a portrait entitled "End of the Forbidden Path." Through Felix, Mary forces Robert to give her money and threatens to expose him publicly unless he breaks off his engagement to Barbara Reynolds ( Florence Martin ) and marries her instead. At the altar, however, Mary turns to the congregation and passionately discloses the entire story of their sordid past.

This 1918 silent melodrama was produced by the Fox Film Corporation, starring popular silent screen actress, Theda Bara. Tragically it remains one of her many lost films.
