Lost 1924 Silent Drama
17 July 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sheila Fairfax ( Evelyn Brent ), brought up by a strict and puritanical spinster aunt ( Clarissa Selwynne ), is the innocent victim of a scandal caused by an all-night escapade with José Gonzales ( Pierre Gendron ). In spite of her undeserved reputation, Dick Morris ( Edward Earle ), a mining engineer, marries her. On their wedding night, she is so filled with fear of Dick's embraces that she repulses him. Thinking that Sheila does not love him, Dick goes to South America in order to buy a mine from Don Alfonso ( Sheldon Lewis ). Sheila follows, hoping to win him back, realizing that the influence of her repressed aunt is responsible for the false modesty that has separated them. Dick and Sheila become the guests of Don Alfonso, uncle of José Gonzales. Don Alfonso and José vie for her regard, and Alfonso kills José in a fight. Dick faces a firing squad under Alfonso's orders, but Sheila saves him by a ruse and they escape, happily reunited.

This 1924 silent drama was based from a short story "The Prude" by Julie Herne, produced by Gothic Pictures, starring Evelyn Brent. Sadly, The Dangerous Flirt now remains a lost silent film.
