The Lure of Luxury (1918) -- Lost Silent ?
21 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dale Aldis ( Ruth Clifford ) and John Coventry ( Edward Hearn ), who were sweethearts as children, meet again after the death of Dale's mother and discover that they are still in love. Dale, who has been raised in a convent, has not inherited her family's snobbish attitudes and therefore ignores the fact that John is the son of the town drunkard. Philip Leswing ( Harry von Meter ), the family attorney, returns from abroad and visits Dale at the old country house in which she spent her youth. Philip, enchanted with Dale, finally convinces her to give up John for a life of wealth and sophistication in the city. When Dale breaks her engagement to John, the young farmer begins to drink heavily, whereupon Dale realizes how much she loves him and asks his forgiveness. Seeing that her affections for John are sincere, Philip relinquishes his attachment to her.

This 1918 silent drama was produced by the Universal Film Manufacturing Company, starring the beautiful actress, Ruth Clifford. Sadly, The Lure of Luxury may now be a lost silent film.
