Lost Alice Joyce Silent
12 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This 1921 comedy/romance starring the popular actress, Alice Joyce, was produced by the Vitagraph Company and sadly now remains a lost film. I have found an original film review to share with the reader.

Moving Picture World, January 29, 1921 -

Alice Joyce, Under Direction of Mrs. Sidney Drew, Is Her Usual Delightful Self in Vitagraph's New Comedy.

Amy Spencer is engaged to Heath Desmond, an artist who believes in an outdoor worship of natural beauty rather than any churchgoing religion. Being influenced by James Bartlett, a minister and a "nice" villain, Amy quarrels with Heath on the score of his unorthodoxy, and the engagement is broken. Cousin Kate Curtis is sent for to try to patch up the breach. On the train Kate and Heath meet and fall in love at first sight, neither being aware of the other's identity. Kate sees her cousins and goes walking to think things over when a storm comes up and she takes shelter in Heath's house. After an hour or two together, during which they become hopelessly enamoured of each other, Amy appears and divulges Heath's position. To save he cousin's happiness, Kate pretends to Heath that she was merely flirting amid clever badinage on either side. While Heath is still endeavouring to ascertain the real state of Kate's affections, Bartlett, the divine who originally caused the quarrel, discloses himself as a rival claimant to Amy's heart. She accepts him, Heath is free to marry Kate and the wedding bells ring out right merrily.
