Man Under Cover (1922) -- Lost Silent ?
16 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Paul Porter ( Herbert Rawlinson ) and his swindler friend Daddy Moffat ( George Hernandez ) visit Paul's hometown and find an old friend, Holt Langdon ( Gerald Pring ), local bank cashier, in trouble over oil investments. Because of his friendship and love for Langdon's sister, Margaret ( Barbara Bedford ), Paul resolves to help him by robbing the bank. Finding Holt a victim of suicide inside the bank, he makes it appear that Holt died defending the premises. Paul determines to reform, and he aids Margaret by buying a local newspaper. When two confidence men induce the populace to invest in a fake oil well scheme, Paul and Daddy Moffat ( George Hernandez ), with the help of lawyer Colonel Culpepper ( Willis Marks ), start another phony oil well and force the confidence men to buy it out at a high price. Paul returns the townspeople's money and tells Margaret the story, she then agrees to marry him.

This 1922 silent crime/drama was produced by the Universal Pictures Corporation and starred Herbert Rawlinson and Barbara Bedford. The survival status of Man Under Cover is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent.
