The Man from Downing Street (1922) - Still Lost
30 May 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Capt. Robert Kent ( Earle Williams ) is assigned by British Secret Service in India to discover the identity of a traitor responsible for a leakage in British code messages. Disguising himself as a rajah, he penetrates the most exclusive circles of Indian society; suspicion at first falls upon Wyndham ( James Butler ), a man of weak character, but he is mysteriously killed at the home of Colonel Wentworth ( Charles Hill Mailes ), and in turn Maharajah Jehan ( Boris Karloff ) and Captain Graves ( Herbert Prior )are involved. Pursuing his investigations, Kent meets Sarissa ( Eugenia Gilbert ), a beautiful dancing girl, also a Secret Service agent, with whom he falls in love and whose assistance is largely responsible for his success. Following many complications, he proves the traitor to be Colonel Wentworth.

This 1922 silent adventure/drama was produced by Vitagraph Studios, starring Earle Williams and featuring Boris Karloff. Sadly, The Man from Downing Street still remains a lost silent film.
