I'll Get Him Yet (1919) - Lost Silent
19 September 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Fearing high income taxes, Bradford Warrington Jones ( George Fawcett ) transfers ownership of an interurban line to his daughter Susy ( Dorothy Gish ), who insists on running it herself. Bored by her suitors, Susy falls for reporter Scoop McCreedy ( Richard Barthelmess ), but when Susy's father throws him out, Scoop swears never to marry a rich girl. Undaunted, Susy pursues and finally persuades him to marry her on the condition that they live on his salary. When Scoop is fired by his editor, one of Susy's suitors, he and Susy join a citizens' group in the suburb where they live, that protests the trolley's decision not to stop there. Susy keeps secret her ownership of the line, and when her old suitors visit on business, she makes up explanations to allay Scoop's suspicions, until he catches three of them hiding in the house. After Susy confesses, Scoop becomes the railroad's general manager and learns to live with his wife's millions.

This 1919 silent comedy was produced by the New Art Film Company, pairing again Dorothy Gish and Richard Barthelmess, with George Fawcett again playing Dorothy's father. Tragically, I'll Get Him Yet also remains a lost silent film.
