Maggie Pepper (1919) - Lost Silent ?
4 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Outspoken young salesclerk Maggie Pepper (Ethel Clayton) is taking care of her sister-in-law's child Claire (Edna Mae Wilson) while she is serving time for shoplifting. Maggie has just turned down a marriage proposal from salesman Jake Rothschild (Raymond Hatton) when she meets Joe Holbrook (Elliott Dexter), the store's owner. She mistakes Holbrook for a man looking for a job and tells him to stay away from the company. Instead of being angry, Holbrook admires her spirit and realizes she actually has some good ideas. Joe then reveals his identity, hires her as his assistant, and the implementation of her ideas soon makes the store prosper. Although he is engaged to another girl, he begins to see that Maggie is the better choice. The sister-in-law Ada (Winifred Greenwood) gets out of jail she marries Sam Darkin (Tully Marshall), they take Claire and teach her to be a pickpocket. After Ada and Claire are apprehended in Joe's store, Ada is imprisoned, while Maggie gets Claire back. When Joe's fiancée breaks their engagement upon seeing his interest in Maggie, Maggie leaves, and to protect Claire from Darkin, decides to move to Pittsburgh. After Joe is wounded helping Maggie prevent Darkin from kidnapping Claire, he pretends to be seriously hurt so that she will nurse him overnight. The next day, Joe demands that she marry him, and she consents.

This 1919 comedy/drama was based on the play Maggie Pepper by Charles Klein and adapted for film by Famous Players-Lasky Corporation. Starring lovely actress Ethel Clayton , sadly it now remains a lost silent film.
