As a Man Thinks (1919) - Lost Silent ?
13 March 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Frank Clayton ( Henry Clive ), a successful New York publisher, his wife Elinor ( Leah Baird ), and their seven-year-old son Dick ( Bobby Ward ), visit Paris. Art critic Benjamin De Lota ( Warburton Gamble ), who becomes a contributor to Clayton's magazine, introduces Frank to Mimi Chardenet ( Mlle. Elaine Amazar ), an artist's model, and they have an affair. While walking with Mimi, Frank encounters Elinor, and introduces Mimi as a newly engaged contributor to his journal. In New York, however, Elinor learns of the affair and embittered, flirts with De Lota. Frank, learning that De Lota and Elinor were once sweethearts and that Elinor's father rejected De Lota's suit because he is Jewish, questions his wife's fidelity and the paternity of his son. Piqued, Elinor visits De Lota's apartment, where Frank sees De Lota attempt to embrace her. Dissuaded by his father-in-law from killing De Lota, Frank initiates divorce proceedings. Elinor and Dick take refuge with Dr. Seelig, a Jewish physician, who uses his religious bond to learn from De Lota that he was imprisoned for two years prior to Dick's birth. Now assured of his wife's fidelity, Frank reconciles with Elinor.

This 1919 silent social/drama was based from the play As a Man Thinks by Augustus Thomas and produced by Artco Productions, Incorporated. The survival status of As a Man Thinks is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
