Important note: This is not a film review. I hope to be able to find and add as many silent film synopsis of films that have a survival status of unknown or presumed lost. I try to do as much research as I can and it is not my intention to deceive anyone, for sometimes the film does exist and some presumed lost films are still being discovered. I am more than delighted if someone has knowledge of a film listed as lost but survives, as I wish all silent films did survive. I hope the reader enjoys this brief synopsis.
Richard Lane ( Huntly Gordon ) isolates himself in the African interior for five years after his sweetheart, Natalie ( Jane Novak ), marries Norman Travers ( Lowell Sherman ). Travers, who tires of family life and neglects his wife and son, drifts into an affair with Nita Howard ( Natalie Kingston ), a cabaret dancer. When Travers' ship is reported lost inward from Europe, Lane hears the news and determines to return and win Natalie; soon Lane develops a fondness for Natalie and her child, Bobby ( Billy Kent Schaefer ), and she consents to marry him. Travers, however, is rescued from a desert island and refuses to grant Natalie a divorce. Lane finds Travers murdered; and thinking that Natalie is guilty, he surrenders himself to the police. She denies his guilt, but the chief of detectives discovers that Nita Howard is the murderess. Lane is happily united with Natalie.
This 1926 silent melodrama was based from the novel Mainspring by Louis Joseph Vance, starring Huntly Gordon, Jane Novak and Lowell Sherman. The survival status of Lost at Sea (1926) is listed in the American Silent Feature Film Database as; No holdings located in archives.
