Missing (1918) - Lost Silent ?
9 September 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In World War I England, Lieut. George Surratt ( Robert Gordon ) marries his devoted Nell ( Sylvia Breamer ), much to the dismay of her sister Hester ( Ola Humphrey ), who had hoped for the pretty young woman to wed a wealthy man. After a brief but blissful honeymoon, George departs for the front, and while he is away, Nell is befriended by her rich and kindly neighbour, Sir William Farrell ( Thomas Meighan ). When George is reported missing, Nell refuses to believe him dead and waits patiently for some news of him. After a year has passed, Hester convinces Nell to marry Sir William, but before the wedding, she intercepts a telegram asking Nell to identify a shell-shocked soldier who resembles Surratt. The wounded man proves to be George, and although Hester tries to conceal this information from Nell, the young wife receives a second telegram from the surgeon and rushes to the hospital to nurse her husband to a complete recovery.

This 1918 silent drama was based on the novel Missing by Mrs. Humphry Ward, produced by J. Stuart Blackton production, starring Thomas Meighan and Sylvia Breamer. The survival status of this film is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent.
