Carolyn of the Corners 1919 - Lost Film ?
17 January 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Bessie Love plays Carolyn May Cameron, a young girl orphaned when her parents are lost at sea. Her only companion is her dog Prince, and the two leave their family's Harlem flat and go to live with her Uncle Joe ( Charles Edler ) in Maine. She soon becomes friends with her uncle's former fiancée, Amanda ( Charlotte Mineau ) and slowly Carolyn helps to repair their relationship. One day while visiting a sick friend, Carolyn and Amanda become trapped in a forest fire. Joe rescues them, and he and Amanda fall back in love and get married. Carolyn decides to return to Harlem, but once home again she is overwhelmed with heartache, but is interrupted by her parents, who were never actually lost at sea.

The sources I found for Carolyn of the Corners, call it a lost film. All I can offer the reader is a synopsis and some comments from critics who watched this film when it originally was released in 1919. I hope a copy resurfaces so I could view this Bessie Love film myself.

One reviewer praised the film for not being melodramatic, and for being suitable for and entertaining to children. Multiple reviewers cited the 20-year-old Love as being quite convincing as a child, one calling her performance "a triumph of natural acting."
