Mary Miles Minter's Third To Last Silent Film
18 January 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Jessica ( Mary Miles Minter ) after having become fed up by her husband Weston (Robert Schable ) philandering ways, goes to her Wyoming ranch. However, her husband follows and begins flirting with saloon proprietress Molly ( Viora Daniels ) and that consequently angers ranch foreman Ross ( Guy Oliver ). Jessica falls in love with gentleman rancher Teddy North ( Tom Moore )and when Weston is killed, Jessica and Teddy each suspects the other. Teddy gallantly accepts the guilt to protect Jessica. His trial is nearly over when Jessica learns from Molly that Ross committed the murder, and the lovers are finally happily united.

The Cowboy and the Lady was based on the Clyde Fitch Broadway stage play of the same name and distributed by Paramount Pictures. Produced by Adolph Zukor and Jesse Lasky, it starred the popular Mary Miles Minter in what would become her third to last motion picture. It is now a presumed lost silent film.
