My Son (1925) - Lost Silent ?, 26 September 2015
Author: Pamela Short from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

In a small New England fishing village populated largely by Portuguese, Ana Silva ( Nazimova ) keeps the general store in order to provide for her adored son, Tony ( Jack Pickford ). When a wealthy woman named Hattie Smith ( Dot Farley ) arrives in the village for a summer vacation, her daughter, Betty ( Constance Bennett ), flirts with Tony and upsets his relationship with his sweetheart, Rosa Pina ( Mary Akin ). Tony falls in love with the irresponsible flapper and steals Mrs. Smith's diamond bracelet in order to finance a trip to New York with Betty. Ana discovers the theft and confronts Tony with the evidence; he attempts to run away, and his mother hits him over the head with a shovel, knocking him unconscious. She then arranges with Captain Bamby ( Charles Murray ) for Tony to be taken away on a boat in order to save him from arrest by Sheriff Parker ( Hobart Bosworth ), who has discovered Tony's misdeed. Rosa sails away with Tony on Bamby's boat, and Ana gives her heart to fisherman Felipe ( Ian Keith ).

This 1925 silent drama was produced by First National Pictures, starring Nazimova, Jack Pickford and Constance Bennett. As with many silent films the survival status of My Son is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost film.
