Ruggles of Red Gap (1923) - Presumed Lost ?
12 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. 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.

Newly rich, uncouth Cousin Egbert Floud ( Ernest Torrence ) wins Ruggles ( Edward Everett Horton ), the valet of a British gentleman, in a poker game during a sojourn in Europe with his wife, Effie ( Louise Dresser ), and, to his family's chagrin, introduces Ruggles to Red Gap as a colonel. The people of Red Gap treat "Colonel" Ruggles as an honoured guest. Ruggles' former employer visits them and falls in love with Kate Kenner ( Lois Wilson ), from the other side of the tracks. The chap's brother is summoned to break up the match: he does so by marrying Kate. Meanwhile Ruggles has opened a successful restaurant and married Emily Judson ( Fritzi Ridgeway ), charming protegée of Kate Kenner.

This 1923 western/comedy was based from the play Ruggles of Red Gap by Harry Leon Wilson, produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation, starring Edward Everett Horton, Ernest Torrence, Lois Wilson, Louise Dresser and Fritzi Ridgeway. The survival status of Ruggles of Red Gap is listed in the American Silent Feature Film Database as; No holdings located in archives.
