Storyline

Outcast is a 1928 silent film drama produced and distributed by First National Pictures. It was directed by William A. Seiter and stars Corinne Griffith, often considered one of the most beautiful women in film. This story had been filmed in 1917 as The World and the Woman with Jeanne Eagels. In 1922 a Paramount film of the same name with Elsie Ferguson reprising her stage role was released. Both films were based on a 1914 play, Outcast, by Hubert Henry Davies which starred Ferguson. The Seiter/Griffith film was an all silent with Vitaphone music and sound effects. In the sound era the story was filmed once again as The Girl from 10th Avenue starring Bette Davis.

Outcast (1928) - Lost Silent Drama
6 March 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Streetwalker Miriam ( Corinne Griffith ), is evicted from her San Francisco boardinghouse and down to her last $3, she meets Geoffrey ( Edmund Lowe ) , an inebriated society fellow trying to forget a broken heart. Geoffrey likes Miriam and, on a whim, takes her to the church where his lost love, Valentine ( Kathryn Carver ), is being married to wealthy Moreland ( Claude King ). Geoffrey becomes greatly attached to Miriam and rents her an apartment. Miriam falls deeply in love with him and becomes desperate when the heartless Valentine vamps her way back into his life. Miriam attempts to return to the streets only to discover that, deeply in love with someone for the first time in her life, she cannot give herself to another man. Miriam then contrives to show Geoffrey that Valentine is a schemer who loves only money, and Geoffrey, come at last to his senses, takes Miriam in his arms.

This 1928 drama was a silent film with Vitaphone music and sound effects and starred the popular actress Corinne Griffith. Tragically it now remains a lost film.
