Tragic Loss For Silent Cinema
3 March 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Frederick Tile ( John Barrymore ), a poor young lawyer, and Ethel Sinclair ( Faire Binney ), the daughter of a wealthy corn magnate, want to marry, but her father refuses his consent until Frederick makes good on his own. In South America, Maria Tile divorces her husband Frederick, who is no relation to the poor lawyer, and because her father's will specifies that Maria's husband will lose his inheritance if he remarries, Maria's lawyer searches in New York for someone bearing the same name. They contact Frederick, the lawyer, who agrees, for $100,000, to marry "in name only" an ugly four-time widow. Meanwhile, Ethel takes her money and goes to elope with Frederick. After he puts her off without telling of the marriage, her father, to legitimize their supposed elopement, places wedding announcements in the newspapers. When the widow reads these and demands more than her payment of $500, Frederick confesses the marriage. Ethel despairs, but when the widow's real husband turns up, just released from Sing Sing, Frederick and Ethel are free to marry, after a twelve month delay.

This 1919 comedy was based on the Broadway play Here Comes the Bride by Max Marcin and Roy Atwell and the novel Are You My Wife? by Max Marcin, produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation and starred John Barrymore. Tragically for silent film cinema, Here Comes the Bride now remains a lost film.
