The Marriage Maker (1923) -- Lost Silent ?
10 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This 1923 silent melodrama was based on the play The Faun; or, Thereby Hangs a Tale by Edward Knoblock (New York, 16 Jan 1911). Produced by Famous Players-Lasky Corporation, distributed through Paramount Pictures and directed by William C. De Mille. The Marriage Maker starred silent film stars Agnes Ayres and Jack Holt, also featuring young Mary Astor. Sadly, this film now remains lost and all I can offer the reader is this brief synopsis.

Sylvani (Charles De Roche) plays matchmaker by arranging a marriage between moneyed Vivian Hope-Clarke (Mary Astor) and Cyril Overton (Robert Agnew), the boy she loves. He then convinces penniless nobleman Lord Stonbury (Jack Holt) to follow his instincts and marry Alexandra Vancy (Agnes Ayres), the girl he loves.
