The Game's Up (1919) - Lost Silent ?
17 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Struggling young painter Ruth Elliott ( Ruth Clifford ) has written her Eastern friend Mildred Colburn ( Mildred Lee ) that she has gained fame in the West as an artist. When Mildred stops to visit on her way to Honolulu, Ruth hires Peter Neyland ( Albert Ray ) to pose as her chauffeur for five hours. Peter is actually a wealthy young man who accepts the offer as a lark. He chauffeurs the two women from the train station to a tea house. Mildred's chaperone Mrs. Peabody Jones ( Margaret Cullington ), arrives with the news that the boat has been delayed and the two must stay with Ruth for a week. Without divulging his identity and aware of Ruth's predicament, Peter places his uncle's apartment at Ruth's disposal. When Mrs. Jones demands to meet celebrities, Peter's valet McQuade ( Harry Holden ) and his friend Ted Latham ( Clifford Grey ) are put into service. The uncle and butler are later arrested as burglars. Meanwhile, Peter has fallen in love with Ruth. Ted has fallen in love with Mildred and double weddings follow.

This 1919 silent comedy was directed by Elsie Jane Wilson for The Universal Film Manufacturing Company. Sadly this film may now remain a lost silent.
