Storyline

Bob Wharton marries Lorelei Knight, a beauty contest winner. While on their honeymoon, Bob is laughingly abducted by the flirtatious Bernice Lane, who keeps Bob out way past his bedtime (and his rising time, too). Lorelei, having somehow gotten the wrong idea, returns to her North Carolina home alone. But Bob follows, intent on proving his innocence and winning her back. At a charity auction, Bob proves up to the task. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Lost Silent ?
27 March 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Lorelei Knight ( Eleanor Boardman ), the pride of Palmdale, South Carolina, wins a beauty contest and becomes the toast of New York, where she meets wealthy Bob Wharton ( Charles Ray ) at a charity ball. They fall in love and are married two days later. Bob takes her home to meet his father, who quickly disillusions her about Bob's character. Lorelei returns to Palmdale and tells no one of her marriage. Bob follows and finds work in a shoe store, quickly becoming successful and attracting every girl in town. Bernice Lane ( Sally O'Neil ), a baby vamp and love pirate, deliberately compromises the innocent and protesting Bob by stranding him all night on a country road. As she expected, her father then attempts to make Bob marry her. Mr. Lane soon learns that Bob is already married and goes gunning for him. Lorelei makes Bernice tell her father that Bob was innocent of all wrongdoing and thereby saves Bob's life. Bob and Lorelei are reconciled.

This 1926 silent drama was based on the novel The Auction Block by Rex Beach and produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer starring Charles Ray and Sally O'Neil. The survival status of The Auction Block is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
