A Cafe in Cairo (1924) -- Lost Silent ?
9 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Naida ( Priscilla Dean ), who has been raised in an Arab family, is completely ignorant of the fact that she is actually white. She has been promised to an Arab chieftain, Kali (Harry Woods), and he asks her to steal some documents from a British Secret Service agent. Naida falls in love with the agent, Barry Braxton (Robert Ellis). The documents turn up missing anyhow, and Braxton has to locate them. Kali, meanwhile, is not thrilled at Braxton's persistent search for the papers, or his interest in Naida. Braxton is kidnapped and taken to the Palace of the Stars, where Naida swears she will kill herself if he is put to death. Nevertheless, he is thrown into the Nile and Naida goes after him. The pair are finally rescued, and the documents retrieved.

This 1924 silent adventure/romance was based on the short story "A Cafe in Cairo" by Izola Forrester. Produced by Hunt Stromberg Productions and starring actress Priscilla Dean, A Cafe in Cairo is now listed as a lost silent film.
