Vanity's Price (1924) -- Lost Silent ?
1 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Vanna Du Maurier ( Anna Q. Nilsson ) a successful actress, ignores her friends' advice and overworks herself toward her goal of having her own theatre. She meets millionaire Henri De Greve ( Stuart Holmes ), who might help her, but she recognizes him to be her former husband, the father of her son, Teddy ( Arthur Rankin ), and an absolute cad, and therefore refuses to have anything to do with him. The shock of seeing De Greve is hard on Vanna, and fearing the loss of her youthful beauty, she visits a physician in Vienna to be rejuvenated. Vanna returns thoroughly changed and even invites the attentions of De Greve when she realizes his interest in Sylvia Grayson ( Lucille Ricksen ) , Teddy's sweetheart. Teddy turns against his mother, Sylvia attempts to drown herself, and Vanna lures De Greve to her boudoir, where she discloses his past and gives him a beating with a riding crop. Sylvia and Teddy are reunited and forgive Vanna, who now recognizes the folly of vanity and accepts the proposal of long-time admirer, theatrical manager Richard Dowling ( Bill Connors ).

This 1924 melodrama was produced by Gothic Pictures and starred beautiful Swedish born American actress, Anna Q. Nilsson . Sadly it now remains a lost silent film.
