Jinx (1919) -- Tragic Loss
19 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After her father's death, a girl who is left with a circus where she performs chores such as manicuring an elephant's nails, is named Jinx ( Mabel Normand ) by Bull Hogarth ( Ogden Crane ), the owner, who blames her for the circus' hard luck. When the star attraction, Rory Bory Alice ( Florence Carpenter ), upset that she has not been paid for weeks, leaves, Jinx attempts Alice's serpentine dance to impress two prospective buyers. When she gets entangled in gauze, however, Hogarth's anger causes Jazbo, the wild man, who is actually Slicker Evans ( Cullen Landis ), and in love with Jinx, to break out and disrupt the crowd. Jinx escapes to a farm house where Aunt Tina Carbery ( Gertrude Claire ) raises seven orphans. Jinx helps out and entertains them with her own back yard circus until Hogarth drunkenly demands that she tell him where Alice went. Although Aunt Tina suspects for a while that Jinx is trying to seduce her sweetheart Sheriff Jepson ( Clarence Arper ), at the end, the sheriff marries Tina, and Slicker, who saves Jinx from Hogarth's beating, is accepted by her.

This 1919 silent adventure/comedy was produced by the Goldwyn Pictures Corporation, starring popular actress Mabel Normand. Tragically it now remains a lost silent film.
