Mrs. Dane's Defense (1918) - Still Lost ?
13 June 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Felicia Hindemarsh ( Pauline Frederick ) accompanies Mrs. Trent ( Grace Reals ) from England to Canada, where she becomes involved in an affair with the woman's husband ( Howard Hall ). Mrs. Trent learns of her husband's unfaithfulness and commits suicide, while Felicia bears a child whom she places in the care of her own childhood nurse. Following the death of her cousin Mrs. Dane, who has left her a substantial inheritance, Felicia returns to England, determined to establish herself in society. Borrowing her deceased cousin's name, she begins a new life and soon falls in love with Lionel Carteret ( Leslie Austen ), the son of a prominent lawyer, Sir Daniel Carteret ( Frank Losee ). Lionel abandons Lady Eastney's ( Maude Turner Gordon ) niece Janet ( Ormi Hawley ) for "Mrs. Dane," but the engagement is broken off when a visitor from Canada reveals Felicia's past to Sir Daniel. Defeated, Felicia returns to her child in Canada, and Lionel to the patient Janet.

This 1918 silent society/drama was produced by the Famous Players Film Company starring Pauline Frederick. Originally released on January 7th, 1918, Mrs. Dane's Defense now remains a lost silent film.
