The Day of Faith (1923) -- Tragic Loss
2 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Jane Maynard ( Eleanor Boardman )opens a mission in memory of philanthropist Bland Hendricks ( Winter Hall ). John Anstell ( Wallace MacDonald ), son of a powerful and greedy millionaire, Michael Anstell ( Tyrone Power Sr ), falls in love with Jane, to the old man's disapproval. Anstell tries to undermine Jane's work by hiring reporter Tom Barnett ( Raymond Griffith ) to write an unfavourable story about the mission. After a visit, Barnett is so convinced, by Jane's sincerity, of the value of the endeavour that he volunteers his help. Anstell pretends to support the mission to gain public favour, but a mob seeking revenge for wrongs done by Anstell attacks the son, John, and beats him to death. Anstell sees his mistakes, awakens to the real purpose of Jane's work, and reforms. Jane and Barnett continue together at the mission.

This 1923 drama was based on the novel, The Day of Faith by Arthur Somers Roche. The film adaptation was produced by the Goldwyn Pictures Corporation. Tragically, this silent film now remains lost.
