Jane Goes A' Wooing (1919) - Lost Silent Drama
24 February 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Jane Neill ( Vivian Martin ) tries to raise her twin sister when their father leaves them. Jane is a stenographer and searches for a well-paying position so she can retrieve the twins from their temporary residence at an orphanage, and lands a job with irritable millionaire playwright David Lyman ( Spottiswoode Aitken ), who is having difficulty with his latest work. After refusing the marriage proposal of hard-working Micky Donovan ( Casson Ferguson ), who operates a lunch wagon, Jane falls in love with Lyman's nephew Monty ( Niles Welch ), who is pursued by fortune-hunting Nita Arliss ( Byrdine Zuber ). When Monty's friends at his party destroy Lyman's model stage, which he used for his writing, Lyman angrily disinherits Monty and dies of a heart attack, having secretly willed his fortune to Jane. Jane encourages Monty to live modestly and get a job, but soon realizes he will never change, she destroys the will so that Monty will receive his father's fortune, and Jane returns to the ever loyal Micky.

Produced by Adolph Zukor for Famous Players-Lasky and distributed by Paramount Pictures, this 1919 drama starring the beautiful actress Vivian Martin, is sadly now considered a lost silent film.
