The Girl in Number 29 (1920) --- Lost Film
1 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After turning out a successful drama, young playwright Laurie Devon ( Frank Mayo ) settles down to a life of idleness. Alarmed and disgusted, his friends make every effort to get him to work again, but he refuses. One evening, while glancing into his mirror, Laurie sees a beautiful girl in the apartment across the way, holding a revolver to her head. Dashing out of his apartment house, he prevents her from pulling the trigger. He learns that her name is Doris Williams( Claire Anderson ) and discovers that her plight is caused by a man named Ransome Shaw ( Ray Ripley ). Soon after, Shaw and his thugs abduct her, and Laurie comes to her rescue, shooting her tormentor. Returning home, he confesses his crime to his sister Barbara ( Elinor Fair ) and friends, and learns that the whole incident was a trick to restore his interest in life. The plot succeeds and Laurie writes another hit play in which his new wife Doris is the star.

This 1920 silent drama was based on the novel The Girl in the Mirror by Elizabeth Jordan. Produced by the Universal Film Manufacturing Company and directed by John Ford (as Jack Ford), it sadly remains a lost silent film.
