Under the Yoke (1918) -- Lost Silent
31 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Maria Valverde ( Theda Bara ), a young Spanish woman whose father has settled in the Philippines, arrives home from the convent where she received her education and is soon approached by Diablo Ramirez ( G. Raymond Nye ), a local plantation overseer who hopes to win her heart. Having met the handsome American army captain, Paul Winter ( Albert Roscoe ), in Manila, Maria scorns Diablo's advances, and later, he is forcefully escorted from the house. Furious, Diablo organizes a group of rebels, who kill Maria's father ( E. B. Tilton ) and hold her a prisoner in her own home. When Captain Winter hears of the revolt, he rushes to Maria's aid but is himself captured. Reinforcements soon arrive from the American army post, and in the fighting, the house is set ablaze. Diablo is about to grab Maria when Captain Winter enters and shoots the rebel down. The Americans finally emerge victorious, and Maria wins her dashing captain.

This 1918 silent drama was based on the short story "Maria of the Roses", by George Scarborough. Produced by the Fox Film Corporation, and filmed on location in San Jacinto Mountains, California, starring Theda Bara. Under the Yoke is sadly now a lost silent film.
