The Venus Model (1918) -- Lost Silent ?
19 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Because of its old-fashioned designs, John Braddock's ( Alec B. Francis ) bathing suit company is about to go out of business when plucky seamstress Kitty O'Brien ( Mabel Normand ) designs a stylish suit that becomes an overnight success. Overworked and distressed by his son Paul's ( Rod La Rocque ) extravagant mode of living, Braddock vacations in the country, leaving Kitty in charge of the business. During his absence, Paul arrives, and Kitty, unaware of his identity, offers him a menial position. Paul, determined to prove himself, accepts the position under an assumed name, but when Hattie Fanshaw ( Una Trevelyn ), an adventuress with whom Paul was involved, threatens to blackmail him, Kitty realizes who he is and resolves to help him. Kitty tricks Hattie into signing a confession and then offers her a job on condition that she reform herself. In return, Paul helps Kitty to rid herself of Briggs ( Edward Elkas ), the dissolute father of her adopted child "Dimples " ( Nadia Gary ). Upon Braddock's return, he finds his son engaged to his new office manager.

This 1918 silent romance/comedy was produced by Goldwyn Pictures and filmed in Fort Lee, New Jersey. Starring the popular silent screen actress, Mabel Normand, The Venus model may now sadly be a lost silent. be
