The Heart of Youth (1919) -- Lost Film ?
7 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Josephine Darchat (Lila Lee), living with her grandparents, the Whipples (Charles Ogle & Fanny Midgley), in the country, loves Russ Prendergast (Tom Forman), the son of wealthy Calvin Prendergast (Guy Oliver), despite the dispute between the families over a spring between their two properties. The feud intensifies when children from the camp situated on the Prendergast land mess the Whipples' kitchen making molasses candy. After the children substitute an old cook's false hair for flowers left by Russ with a love note to Josephine, she stops speaking to him. When the younger Prendergast children hide the Whipple cat, Josephine destroys the dam which brings spring water to the Prendergast property. In the middle of a large fight involving thugs hired by the Prendergasts and neighbours supporting the Whipples, Josephine tries to save a young Prendergast child from drowning and, in turn, is saved by Russ. The families reconcile, the lovers reunite, and the cat, hidden in a well, returns to the rejoicing.

This silent comedy/drama was based on the novel " Friends in the End " by Beulah Marie Dix and produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation, starring Lila Lee. Sadly for fans of silent cinema, this film is listed as lost. hopefully a copy survives and resurfaces for public viewing.
