Shadows of Paris (1924) - Lost Silent
20 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

At the end of the war, Claire ( Pola Negri ), queen of the Paris underground, finds herself in Paris high society. Believing that her apache lover, Fernand ( Charles De Roche ), has been killed in the war, Claire falls in love with Raoul ( Huntley Gordon ), a French official. George De Croy ( Adolphe Menjou ), Raoul's secretary, learns of Claire's past and threatens to expose her unless she yields to him. Fernand returns, Claire realizes that she no longer loves him, and while attempting to steal a diamond necklace, he is killed in a fight with De Croy, who has come to Claire's boudoir to collect his debt. Raoul returns during the scuffle, and De Croy keeps Claire's secret by declaring that he has killed a common thief stealing madame's jewels. Claire, however, confesses the truth and is about to leave when Raoul forgives her.

This 1924 silent drama/romance was based on the play Mon Homme by Francis Carco and André Picard. Produced by Paramount Pictures, starring Pola Negri, tragically only a fragment of this film now survives.
