Storyline

Victor, an adventurous young swashbuckler in 19th-century New Orleans, takes possession of a barber shop as the result of winning a duel, and decides to settle down to a life as a barber. He meets a beautiful young woman and pursues her, but she dismisses his attentions because she thinks he is just a barber. Also pursuing the woman is the evil Capt. Remy, whom she also brushes off. He, however, doesn't take rejection so lightly, and forges papers "proving" that the girl is a "quadroon"--part black, which means that she can be sold as a slave. She is sold to Capt. Remy, and when Victor hears of it, he determines to rescue her. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

The Love Mart (1927) is among thousands of films of the silent era which are likely lost forever, unless a print is sitting in someone's attic or a closet. A shame too, as the director George Fitzmaurice made some fantastic films (including the beloved The Son of the Sheik (1926)) and a pre-stardom Boris Karloff also makes an appearance in a minor role.

The other reviewer cannot have seen this movie, unless he had hoarded a print for himself or used a time machine to view it back in 1927. Seeing as some folks like writing reviews for lost films they cannot have possibly seen, please read with caution and do your research.
