An Amateur Devil (1920) - Lost Silent Film ?
10 January 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Carver Endicott ( Bryant Washburn ), a young sophisticate, is rejected by his fiancée for being too foppish and dull. When she feigns an interest in his father, Carver attempts to disgrace his family name by working as a farmhand and later as a busboy in a hotel. However, the newspapers only praise him for his self-sacrificing principles; and finding that he cannot bring shame to the family through menial labour, he takes up with a notorious actress. But when this maneuver also fails, he returns to his former fiancée, who has no further complaint about his being an inexperienced dullard.

This 1920 social/comedy was based from the short story "Wanted: A Blemish" by Jessie E. Henderson and Henry J. Buxton, produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation and filmed at the Morosco studios in Los Angeles, California, starring Bryant Washburn. The survival status of An Amateur Devil is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
