The Face of the World (1921) -- Lost Silent ?
10 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This 1921 silent drama was produced by Irvin V. Willat Productions. Irvin Willat was an American film director of the silent film era, he directed 39 films between 1917 and 1937. Sadly, this silent may now be a lost film and all I can provide the reader is this brief synopsis. Hopefully it does survive for a proper review.

Harold Mark ( Edward Hearn ) marries Thora ( Barbara Bedford )after treating her injured grandfather, then migrates to the city with his young wife in order to study surgery. While Harold devotes himself to his studies and to social problems, Thora seeks expression with a wild set in Greenwich Village and falls prey to the flattery of sculptor Monsieur Duparc ( Lloyd Whitlock ), who convinces Thora that she is neglected by her husband. The Marks separate, Harold rises to become the head of the hospital, and Thora spends a year as the guest of Duparc's aunt. On his way to persuade Harold to divorce Thora, Duparc is injured in an automobile accident. Harold unselfishly operates to save Duparc (in the midst of a fire set by a patient) and returns to Thora's country home. Thora follows, and they are reconciled.
