Forever (1921) -- Lost Silent ?
3 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Gogo Pasquier (Charles Eaton), the small son of a Parisian chemist and the sweetheart of Mimsi Seraskier (Elsie Ferguson), is adopted by Colonel Ibbetson (Montagu Love), an English rake, following the death of his father and mother. In England, as Peter Ibbetson (Wallace Reid), he grows up in a dissolute environment and is repulsed by the colonel. One night, at the theatre, he meets Mimsi and learns that she is now the Duchess of Towers. In the dressing room of a dancer, Peter quarrels with his uncle, who asserts that Peter is, in fact, his son, and in a later encounter Peter kills him in self-defence. Although he is tried and sentenced to be hanged, Peter's sentence is commuted through the influence of the Duchess of Towers to life imprisonment. Both grow old, but their dream life continues; Mimsi perishes while rescuing children from a burning orphanage, her soul returns to Peter when he dies, and the two are reunited in spiritual bonds.

This 1921 silent romance/drama was based on the play Peter Ibbetson by George Du Maurier (New York, 1891) and the play of the same name by John Nathaniel Raphael (London 23 Jul 1915). The film version was produced and released by Famous Players-Lasky Corporation. Sadly it now remains a lost silent film.
