The Marriage Pit (1920) - Lost Silent ?
17 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When Wall Street dynamo Richard Strong ( Frank Mayo ) rescues Edwin Rossiter ( Frederick Vroom ) from financial ruin, Rossiter is so grateful that he persuades his daughter Elinor ( Lillian Tucker ) to marry their benefactor, although she does not love him. Instead, Elinor favors her distant cousin, Charles Dalton ( Ray Ripley ), a dissipated member of the aristocracy who weds Zoldene ( Dagmar Godowsky ), an actress, on the day of Elinor and Strong's wedding. Soon after, Dalton wearies of Zoldene and renews his attention to Elinor, now estranged from her husband. Meanwhile, Strong and Zoldene's names are linked together in the scandal sheets, alienating Elinor even more from her husband. Dalton enters into a pact with Daniel Brewster ( Boyd Irwin ) to ruin Strong, but Elinor, finally realizing her love for her husband, assists in defeating his enemies. Their problems thus reconciled, Elinor and Strong face a happy future together.

This 1920 silent drama was produced by The Universal Film Manufacturing Company, starring Frank Mayo and Lillian Tucker. The survival status of The Marriage Pit is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent.
