The Next Corner (1924) -- Lost Silent
28 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

American mining engineer, Robert Maury ( Conway Tearle ), and his wife Elsie ( Dorothy Mackaill ), are honeymooning in Paris. Don Arturo ( Ricardo Cortez ), and handsome nobleman, rescues Elsie from the attentions of Jacques, a burly labourer. His aide, Juan Serafin ( Lon Chaney ), looks longingly at Elsie, and knowing the trap that Arturo's charms are setting for her. Maury must leave for the Argentine on business, while Elsie and her mother, Nina Race ( Louise Dresser ), remain behind. Arturo introduces them to Countess Longueval ( Remea Radzina ), the queen of the smart Parisian set. Paula Vrain ( Dorothy Cumming ), Arturo's previous favourite, takes the girl under her wing, and makes her the new queen of the chic fashion set. Maury returns to Paris and is shocked at the change in Elsie, but to ease the tension of their reunion, he urges her to accept an invitation by Mrs. Vrain to attend a house party at Arturo's hunting lodge. Elsie arrives, accompanied by Serafin, but is shocked to learn that no other guests are there. Arturo attempts to seduce her, but she resists momentarily, taking the time to write her husband with a confession of her new love for Arturo. Arturo substitutes two blank pages for the confession, and burns the original. A stranger suddenly appears, accuses Arturo of seducing his daughter, and shoots him. Elsie, returns to Paris, and confides in her mother how they must intercept the letter to her husband. Serafin, believing Arturo's death was due to Elsie, delivers the letter to her husband. Elsie confesses all to her husband and urges him to read the letter, but when he opens the envelope he finds only the blank pages Arturo substituted. He forgives his wife and takes her in his arms. Serafin is found later, shot, clutching one of Elsie's handkerchiefs.

This 1924 silent romantic/melodrama was based on the novel, The Next Corner by Kate Jordan and produced by Famous Players-Lasky and distributed through Paramount Pictures. Starring Lon Chaney and Dorothy Mackaill, sadly this silent now remains lost.
