Important note: This is not a film review. I hope to be able to find and add as many silent film synopsis of films that have a survival status of unknown or presumed lost. I try to do as much research as I can and it is not my intention to deceive anyone, for sometimes the film does exist and some presumed lost films are still being discovered. I am more than delighted if someone has knowledge of a film listed as lost but survives, as I wish all silent films did survive. I hope the reader enjoys this brief synopsis.
Sonya ( Carmel Myers ), a Jewish girl, comes to the United States as an immigrant and works in her father's ghetto grocery store, where she gains the affections of a young settlement worker, David Dahlman ( Allan Forrest ). But she loves Mischa ( John Davidson ), a young doctor who soon arrives from Odessa, and to aid him financially, she distinguishes herself in the local Yiddish theatre. Mischa turns her down for a wealthy heiress, however, and owing to the jealousy of Yazurka ( , a prominent Polish actress, Sonya is refused an important role. During a performance, attended by David, there is a boiler explosion that causes panic in the theatre, and Sonya comes from backstage and calms the crowd. Later, rescued by David, she accepts his admiration and love.
This 1921 silent drama/romance was produced by The Universal Film Manufacturing Company, directed by King Baggot, starring Carmel Myers. The survival status of the Cheated Love (1921) is listed in the American Silent Feature Film Database as; No holdings located in archives.
