Mirandy Smiles (1918) - Lost Silent ?
6 September 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Mirandy Judkins ( Vivian Martin ) works as a scrub lady in the Grand Opera House in order to ease her mother's burden of rearing six children. One of the musicians, Teddy Lawrence ( Douglas MacLean ), is also the organist at St. Mark's Church, and he invites Mirandy to hear him play one Sunday. At the church, Mirandy befriends Sunday schoolteacher Rose White ( Gean Gennung ), who loves John Kennedy ( Lewis Willoughby ), the minister, and soon Rose secures for Mirandy the job of washing the church surplices. Rose promises to send the minister a written reply to his marriage proposal, but the note that she pins to the newly washed surplice is lost. Eventually the note is found and the two become engaged, just as Mrs. Judkins ( Maym Kelso ) discovers that she has inherited a large sum of money. Mirandy, who has fallen in love with Teddy, is reluctant to move to the country with her mother, but he convinces her to go away to school and then return to him as his fiancée.

This 1918 silent comedy/drama was based on the short story "The Littlest Scrub Lady" by Belle K. Maniates, produced by Famous Players-Lasky Corporation, starring pretty silent screen actress, Vivian Martin. The survival status of Mirandy Smiles is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
