Gaby ( Mae Murray ), a dancer and sometime thief working in a Montmartre café, meets Grover ( Francis X. Bushman ), an American millionaire who is doing research on French crime. He arranges to interview Gaby for his study, and, after several discussions, they fall in love. A wedding date is set, but Antoine ( Basil Rathbone ), Gaby's former partner in both dancing and crime, forces her to steal a valuable necklace from Grover by threatening to kill him if she doesn't. Antoine is arrested by the prefect of police, and Grover, realizing that Gaby stole the necklace to protect his life, continues with the preparations for the wedding.
This 1925 silent drama was produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, starring popular silent screen stars Mae Murray, Francis X. Bushman, Roy D'Arcy, Basil Rathbone and Chester Conklin. The survival status of The Masked Bride is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
