The Charmer ( 1925 ) - Lost Silent
9 May 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Mariposa ( Pola Negri ), a wild dancer in a cheap Seville cafe, is taken to New York by Señor Sprott ( Cesare Gravina ), a prominent theatrical producer. Billed as "The Charmer," Mariposa becomes the toast of two continents. Among her most ardent admirers are Ralph Bayne ( Wallace MacDonald ), a millionaire playboy, and his chauffeur, Dan Murray ( Robert Frazer ), both of whom first met her in Spain. Madly in love with Bayne, Mrs. Sedgwick ( Gertrude Astor ) invites Mariposa and her mother to a weekend party in a deliberate attempt to humiliate the beautiful dancer. Bayne quickly realizes that Mariposa is out of place in high society, and, determining to make her his mistress, takes her home with him. Mrs. Sedgwick unexpectedly arrives at Bayne's swank suite (closely followed by her suspicious husband), and Mariposa protects the society woman's reputation at the cost of her own. Murray arrives and attempts at gunpoint to force Bayne to marry Mariposa, but Mariposa objects and declares her intention of marrying Murray instead.

This 1925 silent drama was directed by Sidney Olcott, produced by Famous Players-Lasky, starring silent screen actress Pola Negri. Sadly, The Charmer now remains a lost silent film.
