The Price of Success (1925) - Lost Silent
27 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Born and reared in a Maine village, Ellen Harden ( Alice Lake ) has lived in New York for five years, finding contentment in the love of her successful husband, George ( Lee Shumway ). All this changes, however, when she discovers that he is having an affair with Ardath Courtney ( Alma Bennett ), a social butterfly who is struggling to maintain the appearance of wealth. Ellen, determined to win George back by arousing his jealousy, vigorously flirts with Wally Van Tine ( Gaston Glass ), the wealthy son of the mill owner for whom George works, Ellen also lets George know that she knows that he has been unfaithful. George repents of his philandering, and he and Ellen discover new depths of contentment together.

This 1925 silent drama was produced by Waldorf Pictures, starring Alice Lake. Sadly, The Price of Success now remains a lost silent film.
