The Dark Angel (1925) - Unknown
5 August 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Ordered unexpectedly back into action, Captain Trent ( Ronald Colman ) is unable to obtain a marriage license and, without benefit of clergy, must spend the night with his fiancée, Kitty Vane ( Vilma Banky ), in an English inn. Trent is blinded in battle and taken prisoner by the Germans. He is reported to be dead, and his friend, Captain Shannon ( Wyndham Standing ), discreetly woos Kitty, seeking to soothe her grief with his gentle love. After the war, Shannon finds Trent in a remote corner of England, writing children's stories for a living. Loyal to his former comrade in arms, Shannon informs Kitty of Trent's reappearance. She goes to him, and he conceals his blindness, telling Kitty that he no longer cares for her. She sees through his deception, however, and they are reunited.

This 1925 silent drama was based from the play The Dark Angel, a Play of Yesterday and To-day by H.B. Trevelyan with the scenario written by Frances Marion. It was produced by Samuel Goldwyn Productions, starring Ronald Colman, Vilma Banky and Wyndham Standing. All my research, including the Library of Congress lists this film as lost, however one source claims a print may exist in the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/United Artists film library. I hope it does survive and resurfaces for public viewing. This film was remade in 1935 starring Fredric March, Merle Oberon and Herbert Marshall.
