Away Goes Prudence (1920) -- Lost Silent Comedy ?
20 June 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Young society woman and aviatrix Prudence Thorne ( Billie Burke ), is forbidden to continue flying by her fiancé Hewitt Harland ( Percy Marmont ) and her father. The rebellious Prudence stages her own kidnapping, but Hewitt discovers the scheme and arranges a real abduction to teach her a lesson. His plan backfires, and the kidnappers rob him and capture Prudence. In order to save herself, Prudence pretends to join the gang. In an attempted robbery of Hewitt's house, the police surprise the gangsters, but Prudence escapes to her own house where she is reunited with her family and fiancé. Hewitt and her father, in their relief at Prudence's homecoming, weaken and allow her to continue her aeronautical pursuits.

This 1920 comedy produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation and starring the delightful actress Billie Burke, is sadly now listed as unknown. Hopefully a copy survives and resurfaces for fans of silent cinema.
