While Paris Sleeps (1923) Lost Silent
28 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sculptor Henri Santados ( Lon Chaney ) lives in the Latin Quarter of Paris. He is in love with his lovely model, Bebe Larvache ( Mildred Manning ), but she cares nothing for the artist. She meets Dennis O'Keefe ( John Gilbert ), a wealthy American visiting France, and they are attracted to each other. Santados becomes insanely jealous over the affection Bebe shows Dennis and he plots with Father Marionette ( Jack F. MacDonald ), the owner of "The Chamber of Horrors," a wax museum depicting gruesome crimes of history, to do away with him. Dennis' father ( Hardee Kirkland ) objects to his son's affair with Bebe and he convinces the girl to give the boy up for his own good. Her one request is to have one final night with Dennis during the Mardi Gras festival. Dennis is to pick her up at the studio before the festival, but Santados tricks her into a compromising position when Dennis enters the studio. The young man leaves, heartbroken at Bebe's apparent infidelity, and is captured by Father Marionette who places him into a torture device in his wax museum. Marionette calls Santados and Bebe hears Dennis groaning in agony over the phone. Georges Morier ( J. Farrell MacDonald ), a friend of Dennis', arrives in time to save the boy. He is rushed to a hospital where his father finally consents to his marriage to Bebe.

This 1923 silent horror film was based on the novel The Glory of Love by Leslie Beresford. The film was directed by Maurice Tourneur, starring Lon Chaney and John Gilbert and was filmed in 1920 under the title, The Glory of Love, but was not released until 1923, with it's new title, While Paris Sleeps.

Tragically for fans of silent cinema, this film remains lost.
