The Courage of Marge O'Doone (1920) - Lost Silent ?
Michael O'Doone ( George Stanley ), his wife Margaret ( Billie Bennett ) and daughter Marge ( Pauline Starke ) are new settlers living in the Northwest. One winter day, while on a journey, Michael meets with an accident and fails to return home. Believing that he is dead, Margaret goes into a state of delirium which enables Buck Tavish ( Boris Karloff ), a long-time admirer, to carry her away to his cabin. When she finally comes to her senses she flees in search of Michael, leaving Marge behind. Years later, David Raine ( Niles Welch ) discovers the photo of a girl and determines to find her. Soon after, he meets Rolland, a man who, because of his unhappy earlier life, is dedicated to helping others. While searching in the wilds, David finally discovers the girl in the picture, Marge O'Doone. He brings her to Rolland's cabin and it is then that they discover that Rolland is Marge's father. Miraculously, Margaret is found and the family is reunited.
This intriguing 1927 silent drama was produced by the Vitagraph Company of America, featuring Boris Karloff in his sixth silent film. Tragically this film is now considered lost.
