Honor Bound (1920) - Lost ?
17 July 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Irresponsible Billy Thorpe ( Frank Mayo ) is sent to South America by his financée Claire's ( Helen Lynch ) father, George Vincent ( Gordon Sackville ), the rubber king, in order to reform. Upon arriving, Billy goes to work for the plantation foreman, Vincent's son-in-law, James Ellison ( Edward Coxen ), who is having an affair with a native girl named Koree ( Dagmar Godowsky ). When the Vincent yacht unexpectedly arrives, bringing Vincent, Claire and Ellison's wife Mary ( Irene Blackwell ), Billy induces Ellison to behave respectably, and the two go on board. That evening, Koree swims to the yacht, and Ellison allows the party to suspect that she is Billy's sweetheart. Billy keeps silent for Mary's sake, but after a fight with Santos Cordero ( Nick De Ruiz ), Koree's former lover, he becomes so disgusted with Ellison's treachery and the others' suspicions that he swims ashore, wounded, and is nursed by Koree. Claire follows and, after learning the truth from Koree, is reconciled with Billy while Ellison is sent home to rehabilitate himself.

This 1920 silent drama was produced by The Universal Film Manufacturing Company and starred Frank Mayo. The survival status of Honor Bound is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
