Storyline

Anne Winchester is acquitted in court of murdering her husband, and leaves her Nashville hometown for a small community on Long Island, NY. She moves into a boarding house and changes her name to Wharton. She soon falls for David Brinton, a widower who owns the place, and her affections are reciprocated. Alan Woodward, who is after David's daughter Julia, recognizes Anne and threatens to expose her if she tries to interfere with his pursuit of Julia, as Anne knows he is only after her money. Anne nevertheless warns Julia about Alan, but Julia refuses to listen. Anne decides that stronger measures must be taken to save the daughter of the man she loves. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

The Winchester Woman (1919) -- Lost Silent Drama
12 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This 1919 crime/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, October 24, 1919

This is a Vitagraph feature, in which Alice Joyce is starred. It is a picture of unusual interest, inasmuch as it is different to the general run of five-reelers.

Seldom has Miss Joyce been seen in a part more suitable, and the young star makes the most of her many emotional scenes. Although she does not appear to force herself to the front, and there are a few close-ups, yet one is always forcibly reminded she is the heroine.

Having just been acquitted for the murder of her husband, Mrs.Wharton (Miss Joyce) tries to find seclusion in an out-of-the-way country village, but her secret soon leaks out and becomes the gossip of the community. Then in her efforts to save the daughter of the family with whom she is boarding from an unscrupulous villain, she is further compromised. But the man she loves sticks to her through all her troubles, and the story has a happy ending.

There is lots of human interest in the yarn. It has a punch and will please almost any audience.
