It's fortunate this film survives
6 September 2010 | by (East Coast, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

One of several Olive Thomas features to survive, "Love's Prisoner" hales from the old Triangle studios and not too long before Triangle's demise. The version I viewed was released by Grapevine Video with a pleasand and peaceful enough score. This was one of the last films of star Olive Thomas and it shows her in a sympathetic acting part rather than the carefree girlish flapper. Jean Hersholt is recognizable as a guest at a dinner party. The older actress who's pearls were stolen looks like Cissy Fitzgerald or Trixie Friganza unbilled. In looks Olive Thomas favors other actresses such as May McAvoy and Seena Owen IMHO. Thomas plays the part of A woman who loses her father & later her wealthy husband, Despite her best efforts to remain respectable she eventually turns to thievery. Through the love of a detective named Jim she finds a stable relationship and remarriage. The ending to this film has suffered nitrate decomposition. The ending is supplied by explanation on a title care. Directed by John Francis Dillon.
