The Oakdale Affair (1919) -- Lost Film ?
22 March 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Gail Prim ( Evelyn Greeley ) refuses to marry her stepmother's choice, decides to leave her life of luxury, cuts off her long her hair, dresses in her butler's clothes and steals money and jewels from her father's safe. She finds a barn to spend the night and introduces herself to the thieves already there as the Oskaloosa Kid, a wanted criminal, and barely escapes their struggle to get her loot. Meanwhile, the real Oskaloosa Kid ( Frank Joyner ) kills Reginald Paynter ( Charles Mackay ) and throws Nettie Penning ( Mona Kingsley ), whom Reginald was trying to seduce, onto the highway. Gail and Arthur Stockbridge ( Reginald Denny ), a friendly tramp who helped her, find Nettie and take her to a deserted house, where they meet Gioja, a gypsy, and her performing bear. After Nettie is seized by crooks and returned to her father for a reward, Gail and Arthur are arrested, as suspected killers of the missing Gail. Gail's father stops a mob about to lynch them by confirming her identity, after which Arthur, really an author looking for atmosphere, wins Gail's affection.

This 1919 adventure/drama was filmed at Fort Lee, New Jersey by the World Film Company. It starred Austrian born actress Evelyn Greeley and was Reginald Denny's fifth film. Sadly it is now listed as unknown on the list of lost silent films.
