The Girl on the Stairs (1925) -- Status Unknown
5 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Discovering that Dick Wakefield ( Freeman Wood ), with whom she has been carrying on a flirtation, is married, Dora Sinclair ( Patsy Ruth Miller ) becomes engaged to Frank Farrell ( Niles Welch ), a rising young attorney. Wakefield refuses to return her love letters, and his wife walks out on him. While sleepwalking one evening, Dora enters the Wakefield home in an unsuccessful and unconscious effort to retrieve the letters. The following morning Wakefield is found murdered, and Joan is accused of the crime. Farrell undertakes her defence and calls Dr. Bourget ( George Periolat ) to the stand. Bourget hypnotizes her, and she recalls the events of the night of the crime, revealing that she had seen José Sarmento ( Bertram Grassby ), an insanely jealous South American, kill Wakefield for flirting with Señora Sarmento. Dora is freed, and she and Dick marry.

This 1925 silent mystery/drama was produced by Peninsula Studios and filmed in San Mateo, California, starring actress Patsy Ruth Miller. The status of this film is now listed as unknown.
