The White Heather (1919) -- Lost Silent Film
5 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Lord Angus Cameron's ( Holmes Herbert ) marriage to a woman of his titled Scottish class is thwarted by his secret marriage years before to Marion Hume ( Mabel Ballin ), the housekeeper of the castle. Cameron attempts to repudiate the marriage, the only record of which is a certificate in the sunken wreck of a yacht, The White Heather . Marion goes to court to prove her claim and secure the rights of her son by Cameron, but is defeated. Alec McClintock ( Ralph Graves ), who is in love with Marion, and Cameron both want to recover the record, so they don diving suits and descend to the wreck. An underwater struggle ensues and Cameron severs his own air tube and drowns while attempting to cut off his rival's air supply. Alec then recovers the marriage record and wins Marion.

This 1919 silent drama was a Maurice Tourneur Productions and distributed by Famous Players-Lasky Corporation. Sadly it now remains a lost silent film, hopefully a copy survives and resurfaces for public viewing.
