Love's Wilderness (1924) -- Status Unknown
4 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In a quiet Mississippi town, Linda Lou Heath ( Corinne Griffith ), the orphaned daughter of an aristocratic family, is reared in seclusion by two strict aunts. The lonely girl is in love with David Tennant ( Holmes Herbert ), but when he leaves to do medical work in Africa, she marries Paul L'Estrange ( Ian Keith ), a wanderer. She goes with Paul to an isolated farm in Canada, where he deserts her, feigning death in a river accident. Believing herself free to marry, Linda enters into wedlock with David and accompanies him to the penal colony on Devil's Island. During a violent storm, there is a prison break, and Linda discovers that one of the escaping prisoners is Paul. David finds them together and suspects that she still loves her first husband. David gallantly arranges a pardon for Paul, but, before the latter can be freed, he is killed by a fellow prisoner. Linda explains to David that Paul was nothing to her, and they are reconciled.

This 1924 drama/romance was based on the short story "Wilderness" by Helen Campbell. The film was produced by Corinne Griffith Productions and distributed by First National Pictures. Sadly it now remains a lost silent film, and surviving film stills show a very beautiful Corinne Griffith. Hopefully a copy of this film survives and resurfaces for public viewing.
