Silken Shackles (1926) -- Lost Silent ?
21 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

American diplomat Howard Lake ( Huntley Gordon ), on a mission to Buda-Pesth ,is distressed when his wife, Denise ( Irene Rich ), becomes entangled in a series of romantic flirtations culminating in the attempted suicide of a youth. He determines to teach her a lesson, and that evening, Denise meets Tade Adrian ( Victor Varconi ), a young violinist, in a fashionable restaurant and is captivated by him. Howard conceives a scheme whereby he pays Adrian to make love to his wife, but when Adrian comes to believe that she actually loves him, he revokes the agreement. Learning about Adrian's boorish peasant family, Howard invites them to the restaurant where Adrian is appearing, and Denise, shocked by their vulgarity, promises never to flirt again and returns home with her husband.

This 1926 silent comedy was based on the play "Silken Shackles" by Charles Harris. The film was produced by Warner Brothers Pictures, starring popular actress Irene Rich. Tragically it may now be a lost silent.
