The Great Deception (1926) -- Lost Silent ?
3 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Handsome young Englishman, Cyril Mansfield ( Ben Lyon ), is associated with the German Secret Service as a spy in England but is loyal to British intelligence, of which he is a member. He is loved by Lois( Aileen Pringle ), an American whose favour is sought by Rizzio ( Basil Rathbone ), also a double agent, who suspects Cyril's disloyalty to Germany. With the intention of conveying false information to the Imperial German Government, Cyril, accompanied by his faithful mechanic, Handy ( Sam Hardy ), and by Lois, escapes to Germany, though Lois is herself abducted by Rizzio and brought to headquarters in a U-boat. Innocently, she betrays Cyril, and they are both sentenced to death. On a pretence of aiding Cyril, Rizzio urges Lois to accompany him on a diplomatic mission, but Cyril and Handy overcome their captors; and Lois and Cyril escape to England in his aircraft.

This 1926 intriguing melodrama was based on the 1915 novel, " The Yellow Dove " by George Gibbs and the film was distributed by First National Pictures. The New York Times praised Basil Rathbone for portraying the German agent in a convincing fashion. Sadly, this film's status is listed as unknown.
