The Prince and Betty (1919) - Lost Silent ?
25 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Young American John Maude ( William Desmond ) is forced to find a job when he falls in love with society girl Betty Keith ( Mary Thurman ). He accepts a sudden offer to go to Mervo, a tiny island country, where he is hired by Benjamin Scobell ( Wilton Taylor ) to pose as the lost prince of Mervo as an attraction to bolster the Mervo casino as a rival of Monte Carlo. Scobell also wants John to marry his stepdaughter, who turns out to be Betty. When Betty accuses John of being simply a shill for a gambling house, John closes the casino and tries to stage a revolution to make Mervo a republic. The natives resist, but the President of Mervo ( Walter Perry ) returns to run the casino himself, and Betty and John escape to America together.

This 1919 silent was based on the novel The Prince and Betty by P.G. Wodehouse, produced by Jesse D. Hampton Productions, starring William Desmond, Mary Thurman and featured Boris Karloff. The survival status of this film is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent.
