Tragic Loss For Silent Cinema
31 March 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Belle Johnson ( Billie Burke ), a flirtatious widow in Paris for the carnival season, finds that the marriage of her sister Grace ( Jane Warrington ) and Frank Morley ( Lumsden Hare ) is headed for trouble. Frank is very absorbed in his business, thus Grace has begun an affair with the handsome Sir Lionel Heathcote ( Huntley Gordon ). Belle tries to save her sister from eloping with Heathcote by making him promise to drop the affair and return to England. Finding them going ahead with their plans, however, she steps in, at the risk of losing the respect of Jim Morley ( Ward Crane ), Frank's brother, who has just returned from South America to ask Belle to marry him. Discovering Belle at Heathcote's apartment, Frank leads Jim to believe that she has been entirely too frisky, but Grace confesses the truth to her husband, rather than see her sister lose the man she loves. Finally, Belle and Jim go off on their honeymoon.

This 1920 silent comedy was based from the play The Frisky Mrs. Johnson by Clyde Fitch, produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation, starring the popular actress Billie Burke in her next to last silent film. Tragically, The Frisky Mrs. Johnson now remains a lost film.
