Fifth Avenue (1926) --- A Tragic Loss
3 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When her cotton crop is burned, Barbara Pelham (Marguerite De La Motte), a beautiful southern girl, comes to New York to find work as a fashion designer, staying with Mrs. Kemp (Louise Dresser), a woman she meets on the northbound train. In Mrs. Kemp's house, Barbara encounters Peter Heffner (William V. Mong), a wealthy stockbroker, and discovers from him that she has taken up residence in a whorehouse. There is a police raid, but Barbara escapes arrest and returns home. Heffner's son, Neil (Allan Forrest), goes south to inspect some family property and there meets Barbara, with whom he falls in love. They decide to be married, and she accompanies him to New York, where she meets the elder Heffner for a second time. He denounces her as a whore, but Barbara goes to Mrs. Kemp, who explains the misunderstanding to everyone's satisfaction.

This society/drama was based on the short story "Fifth Avenue" by Arthur Stringer, and the film was produced by Belasco Productions. It remains a tragic loss for silent cinema, fans can only hope a copy survives and resurfaces.
