The Vengeance of Durand (1919) -- Lost Silent
12 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This 1919 drama starring the popular actress, Alice Joyce, was produced by the Vitagraph Company and sadly now remains a lost film. I have found an original film review to share with the reader.

Variety, November 14, 1919

Some four or five years ago Vitagraph turned out a picture in three or four reels entitled "The Vengeance of Durand." The story was by Rex Beach, and adapted for the screen by Mr. and Mrs. George Randolph Carter. Recently in the search for new material some one suggested that "The Vengeance of Durand" in its original form was so powerful a story it would stand remaking, with the result that there is now a seven-reeler with Alice Joyce starred.

She story still remains a bear from the standpoint of suspense. As a feature picture it holds up with anything that has recently been placed on the market in the form of an out-and-out tragedy.

Tom Terris handled the direction and a cast of "names" was secured to surround Miss Joyce, the happiest selection of which was Gustav von Seyffertitz to play Durand. Here is a finished actor. Percy Marmont as the lead opposite Miss Joyce also gives a corking performance, although he does not appear to advantage in the early sections. Eugene Strong has no part to speak of and for all that he does might just as well have been an "atmosphere" person, but it adds another name to the cast. Miss Joyce has a dual role, first playing the wife and later the daughter who has grown to maturity. She gives a wonderful performance and looks stunning in a blondish sort of wig in the early section.
