Soldiers of Fortune (1919) -- Lost Silent ?
25 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Civil engineer Robert Clay ( Norman Kerry ) is commissioned by wealthy New Yorker Mr. Langham ( Melbourne MacDowell ) to open iron deposits in the tiny South American republic of Olancho. General Mendoza ( Wallace Beery ), the unscrupulous head of the army, unsuccessfully tries to persuade President Alvarez ( Wilfred Lucas ), and then Clay, to divide the spoils of the contract. Mendoza begins a revolution against Alvarez, but Clay and his men set out to stop the plan. Meanwhile, Mr. Langham arrives with his two attractive daughter's, Alice ( Anna Q. Nilsson ) and Hope ( Pauline Starke ), on board a yacht owned by Reginald King ( Ward Crane ), Alice's suitor. Clay's long-lived attraction for Alice has been met with coldness, but Hope wins his heart by shooting down some of Mendoza's men when they try to kill him. After a fierce battle, and the arrival of a U.S. battleship with sailors, Mendoza is defeated.

This 1919 silent drama was based on the Spanish–American War, and directed by Allan Dwan, with filming on locations at the San Diego Fairgrounds and Balboa Park, California. The film boasted a fine cast of silent screen actors and actresses, including Wallace Beery, Norman Kerry, Wilfred Lucas, Anna Q. Nilsson and Pauline Starke. Produced by the Mayflower Photoplay Company and released in American theaters on November 22, 1919. This film's status is now listed as unknown, which sadly suggests it may now be a lost film.
