The Man Upstairs (1926) - Lost Silent ?
16 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Geoffrey West ( Monte Blue ), a traveller and adventurer, sees a girl in a London hotel and uses the personals column of a newspaper to get in touch with her. The girl, Marion Larnard ( Dorothy Devore ), then sets a test for Geoffrey, he is to write her a letter each day for five days and, if he proves himself to be an interesting fellow, she will have dinner with him. As a joke, Geoffrey convinces Marion that he has done away with a certain Captain Fraser-Freer, Marion is, at first, quite concerned, but when she realizes that Geoffrey is jesting, she decides to teach him a lesson. She arranges with Fraser-Freer ( John Roche ) to disappear and has Geoffrey arrested for his murder. Letting Geoffrey fret for a while, Marion eventually arranges for his release and assures him that he has indeed proved himself to be an interesting fellow.

This 1926 silent comedy/drama was based on the short story "The Man Upstairs" by Earl Derr Biggers, produced by Warner Brothers Pictures and starring Monte Blue and Dorothy Devore. The status of this film is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent.
