The Love Letter (1923) - Lost ?
16 August 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is my ambition to add as many silent film synopsis of films that have a survival status of unknown or presumed lost. I try to do as much research as I can and it is not my intention to deceive anyone, for sometimes the film does exist and some presumed lost films are still being discovered. I am more than delighted if someone has knowledge of a film listed as lost but survives, as I wish all silent films did survive. I hope the reader enjoys this brief synopsis.

While working in an overall factory Mary Ann McKee ( Gladys Walton ) sends mash notes in the overalls prepared for shipment. She is involved in a robbery perpetrated by her boyfriend, Red Mike ( George Cooper ), but escapes and goes to the town from which she has received an answer to one of her notes. There Mary Ann marries blacksmith Bill Carter ( Edward Hearne ) and is happy until Red Mike comes for her. The sight of Mary Ann saying farewell to her child causes Red Mike to relent, and he leaves the Carters in peace.

This 1923 silent crime/drama was directed by King Baggot, produced by the Universal Pictures Corporation, starring silent film actress Gladys Walton. The survival status of The Love Letter is sadly listed as presumed lost.
