Three Sinners (1928) - Unknown ?
9 August 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is my ambition to add as many silent film synopsis of films that have a survival status of unknown or presumed lost. I try to do as much research as I can and it is not my intention to deceive anyone, for sometimes the film does exist. I am more than delighted if someone has knowledge of a film listed as lost but survives, as I wish all silent films did survive. I hope the reader enjoys this brief synopsis.

Perceiving that her husband no longer loves her, Gerda ( Pola Negri ), Countess Wallentin, agrees to go to Vienna to visit relatives, leaving the count ( Paul Lukas ) in Germany to pursue his political ambitions with Baroness Hilda Brings ( Olga Baclanova ), a close friend. En route, Gerda is seduced by Raoul Stanislav ( Tullio Carminati ), a famous musician. She leaves the train for a brief time, and it departs without her; later she finds that the train crashed, killing everyone aboard. Guilty because of her affair, Gerda fails to notify her husband of her survival. Later, as hostess in a fashionable Viennese gambling den, she sees her husband, who is strangely attracted to her because of what seems to be a remarkable resemblance to his wife. Gerda discloses her identity and returns to her husband. Later, seeing that he does not really love her, she takes their child and sails to America with a wealthy patron of the gambling house.

This 1928 silent drama was based from the play Das zwelte leben by Rudolf Bernauer and Rudolf Öesterreicher, produced by Paramount Famous Lasky Corporation, starring Pola Negri, co-starring Warner Baxter, Olga Baclanova, and Paul Lukas. The survival status of Three Sinners is listed in the American Silent Feature Film Database as; No holdings located in archives.
