The Pest (1919) -- Lost Silent
19 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Country bumpkin Jigs ( Mabel Normand ), the daughter of Asher ( Jack Curtis ) and Amy Blodgett ( Pearl Elmore ) , is befriended by Gene Giles ( John Bowers ), Judge Fisher's ( Alec B. Francis ) nephew. The judge's daughter Blanche ( Leota Lorraine ) is wooed by John Harland ( Charles K. Gerrard ) because of her father's wealth. As a practical joke to amuse her more sophisticated friends, Blanche invites Jigs to a party at the Fisher home. Jigs is humiliated but finds sympathy from the judge and his other nephew, John Bowers. The judge notices an old ring that Jigs is wearing that night. Harland tries to obtain the ring, but Giles has already taken it. Harland plots against Giles and steals bonds from the judge's safe that Giles is holding there for protection. Jigs is held prisoner in the Blodgett attic where she overhears a plan to kill the judge and place suspicion on Giles. Jigs escapes and warns the judge. Jigs' ring reveals that she is really the judge's daughter whom Amy Blodgett exchanged Blanche for in infancy. Jigs finds happiness with Giles who is exonerated.

This 1919 silent comedy was produced by Goldwyn Pictures Corporation with filming on locations in Los Angeles, California. Starring the popular silent screen actress Mabel Normand, sadly it now remains a lost silent.
