The Mother of His Children (1920) - Lost Silent ?
22 September 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When Princess Yve ( Gladys Brockwell ) comes to Paris, attended by her faithful servant Hadji ( Nigel de Brullier ), she meets sculptor Richard Arnold ( William Scott ) and the two fall in love. This drives Count Tolstoff ( Frank Leigh ), who also is in love with the princess, into a jealous rage. Attempting to gain revenge by destroying Richard's prize-winning statues, Tolstoff breaks into his studio but is followed by Hadji. In the ensuing scuffle, the count is killed and Richard is arrested for the crime. When the princess discovers that Richard is married, it looks as if the sculptor will lose both his love and his freedom, until the servant confesses to the crime and Richard is notified that his wife has died while on an ocean voyage. Thus freed of his bonds, the sculptor marries the princess, who then becomes the mother of his children.

This 1920 silent drama was produced by the Fox Film Corporation, starring silent film actress Gladys Brockwell. The survival status of The Mother of His Children is now listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it is now a lost silent film.
