The Sin Flood (1922) -- Lost Silent ?
22 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Stratton's cafe, a popular spot with the people of Cottonia, a wealthy cotton town on the banks of the Mississippi, installs flood-proof doors as a safeguard against an overflow of the river, when a flood comes, it appears that the entire town will be submerged. Trapped in Stratton's cafe are Billy Bear ( Richard Dix ), a young broker, and Poppy ( Helene Chadwick ), a chorus girl with whom he has been in love. Also there are a street preacher, a tramp, a stranded Swedish engineer, a poor actor, a corporation lawyer, a grasping stockbroker, the bartender, and Stratton ( Will Walling ), the proprietor. Protected from the sweeping flood waters, they are secure until the engineer announces that they will suffocate when the air is exhausted. Facing death, all of the characters reform, and uniting in brotherly love they confess their sins and prepare for death. When they decide to admit the flood waters, they discover that the crest of the flood has passed, and all then revert to their former selfishness, except Billy and Poppy, who are happily married.

This 1922 silent drama was based on The Deluge, a 1917 Broadway Play. The film version was directed by Frank Lloyd and produced by Goldwyn Pictures, starring Richard Dix and Helene Chadwick. Sadly, The Sin Flood may now be a lost silent film.
