A Tragic Loss
3 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After five years of marriage, Beth ( Eleanor Boardman ) and Peter Marsh's ( Conrad Nagel ) life together is a series of rows and reconciliations. Beth is frivolous and extravagant, while Peter is domineering and ambitious and has difficulty in meeting the bills. Daniel Rankin ( Lew Cody ), who lives in the same apartment building, becomes attracted to Beth and arranges with the Marsh chauffeur to have her car break down, allowing him to offer assistance and gracefully introduce himself, Rankin later invites her to a dance. Resenting Rankin's attentions to his wife, Peter forbids her to go, but she goes to spite him, and Rankin proposes that she divorce Peter and become his wife instead. After she returns home, Beth has a bitter fight with Peter, walks out of the apartment, and goes to see Rankin. Rankin repeats his proposal, but, suspecting that the tearful Beth truly loves her husband, he reads her the story of David and Bathsheba from the Bible. This account of the severe consequences of illicit love prompts her to return to Peter, with whom she is soon reconciled.

What a tragic loss this silent drama is for silent cinema. Surviving film stills show elaborate sets and costumes for the David and Bathsheba sequences, that were filmed in early Technicolor.
