More to Be Pitied Than Scorned (1922) - Lost
20 September 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Actor Julian Lorraine ( J. Frank Glendon ) comes home one day to find his wife, Viola ( Alice Lake ), in the company of Vincent Grant ( Philo McCullough ). Assuming the worst, he takes their daughter, Ruth ( Josephine Adair ), to stay with Josephine Clifford ( Rosemary Theby ), his leading lady. Viola tries to follow him and explain, but she is injured by an automobile and loses her memory. Years pass, Julian marries Josephine, and Viola recovers both her memory and her child. When Vincent threatens harm to the girl unless Viola marries him, she takes Ruth back to Julian. In the performance of a play Vincent accidentally shoots Josephine and is himself killed, thus clearing the way for the reunion of Julian and Viola.

This 1922 silent melodrama was the first film from Columbia Studios and produced by Harry Cohn, starring silent film actress Alice Lake. As with many silent films, sadly More to Be Pitied Than Scorned still remains lost.
