The Secret Code (1918) - Lost Silent ?
17 April 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Senator John Calhoun Rand ( J. Barney Sherry ) marries Sally Carter ( Gloria Swanson ), a woman fifteen years his junior, and then finds, because of America's declaration of war on Germany, that he must devote all of his time to his work. Lola Walling ( Rhy Alexander ), who plays the role of patriotic confidant to the senator so that she may gather secret information for the German government, realizes that Baron de Vorjeck ( Leslie Stewart ) of the Russian embassy is very fond of Sally and encourages their friendship. When Rand is assigned to investigate espionage activities in Washington, Mrs. Walling leads him to believe that Sally is sending messages to the Kaiser through the young Russian. Since the messages are encoded into the stitching of crocheted mufflers, Sally's newly acquired interest in crocheting convinces Rand of her guilt, until Secret Service agent Jefferson Harrow ( Joe King ) locates the spy headquarters and proves Sally innocent. Rand's happiness is doubled when his wife confesses that she has been fashioning jackets for the baby she is expecting.

This 1918 silent espionage/drama was produced by the Triangle Film Corporation, with the screen story by Adela Rogers St. Johns. Starring Gloria Swanson, sadly The Secret Code may now be a lost silent film.
