Queen of the Sea (1918) -- Lost Silent Film ?
28 June 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The Queen of the Sea, Merilla ( Annette Kellerman ) learns that if she saves four lives, she will be granted with a mortal body and an immortal soul. The kindly queen saves her first lives by rescuing three drowning sailors whose ship the Sirens (the daughters of the wicked King Boreas of the Storms) have been instructed to destroy. Furious, King Boreas ( Walter Law ) confines Merilla in a cave, but she is freed by Prince Hero ( Hugh Thompson ), a human being with whom she falls in love. Determined to have his vengeance, Boreas wrecks Hero's ship and locks up the prince's fiancée, Princess Leandra ( Mildred Keats ), in the Tower of Knives and Swords. Following several thrilling adventures, Merilla rescues Leandra, who, in her gratitude, releases the prince from his promise so that he may marry his beloved sea queen.

This intriguing fantasy/drama was produced by the Fox Film Corporation and filmed on location in Bermuda. It was originally released in September 1918, but now sadly remains a lost silent film.
