The Mystery Club (1926) - Lost Silent ?
26 September 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The Mystery Club, an organization of millionaires, draws up an agreement at the instigation of John Cranahan ( Charles Lane ), wagering that crimes can be committed without detection by the police; Inspector Burke serves as arbiter. A forfeiture of $25,000 is set, and the members draw secret lots to decide who is to be the criminal. When Burke himself is reported murdered, the members agree to cancel the agreement but cannot find the document. The jewels of Mrs. Vanderveer ( Mildred Harris ) are also missing, and in their place she finds a note implicating the club and causing the members to suspect one another. Nancy Darrell ( Edith Roberts ) telephones club member Dick Bernard ( Matt Moore ), her sweetheart, that the jewels will be returned for a fee, which Dick delivers to her in a low dive; subsequently, a kidnapping and forgery charge is laid at the club's door. Cranahan finally explains that he has schemed to get the club members interested in criminology, and thus relieved of their "crimes" they gladly contribute to an institute for criminal reform.

This 1926 silent mystery/drama was produced by the Universal Pictures Corporation, starring Matt Moore, Edith Roberts and Mildred Harris. The survival status of The Mystery Club is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
