Sis Hopkins (1919) -- lost Silent ?
20 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Coarse country girl Sis Hopkins ( Mabel Normand ) and general store clerk Ridy Scarboro ( John Bowers ) are so engrossed in their dalliance that a basket is overturned and a large can of oil spills into a pool, creating a slow leak. Wealthy villager Vibert ( Sam De Grasse ) thus becomes convinced that Sis's farm is located on a pocket of oil, and he schemes to gain control of the property by marrying Sis. Vibert sends her to a young woman's seminary for refinement. Sis creates chaos in the school and is a problem for principal Miss Peckover ( Eugenie Forde ). Vibert eventually realizes Sis will never measure up to his standards for a wife. Ridy, who has been jealous, is overjoyed when Sis returns home. Vibert entices Pa Hopkins ( Thomas Jefferson ) into selling the property for a small amount, but Sis shrewdly succeeds in tripling the price. Finally Vibert discovers the can in which he has invested so heavily.

This 1919 silent comedy was based on a play made famous by Rose Melville, the film was released by the Goldwyn Pictures Corporation, starring silent actress, Mabel Normand. It was remade in 1941 under the same title with hillbilly comedienne Judy Canova playing Normand's role. Sadly this 1919 film is now presumed lost.
