A Rogue's Romance (1919) Lost Silent

Author: Pamela Short from Canada
28 October 2015

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Monsieur Picard ( Earle Williams ), a welcome guest of the French aristocracy, having been awarded the Croix de Guerre, is also a master thief who baffles the Parisian police. One night, while Picard watches an Apache dance, he learns that one of his three adopted children is seriously ill. When his car breaks down, Picard politely forces Helen Deprenay ( Katherine Adams ) to loan him her auto, and leaves his cross as security. The next day, the police pursue Picard to the Deprenay home where the prefect warns Helen about Picard. Helen writes to the entreating Picard, and refuses to see him until he proves himself of worth to society. Disguised as Scotland Yard agent Armand DuBois, Picard is present at the Deprenay home when a necklace is stolen. After Helen covers for him, Picard catches the thief in an attempt to swindle the entire community in a stock market scheme. He informs the police that Picard no longer exists, and escapes with Helen to a new life.

This 1919 silent crime/drama was produced by the The Vitagraph Company of America, starring Earle Williams and Katherine Adams, with Rudolph Valentino (billed as Rudolph Volantino), in a bit part as an Apache dancer. Tragically A Rogue's Romance now remains a lost silent film.

Early Valentino film is one of the lost.

Author: Arne Andersen (aandersen@landmarkcollege.org) from Putney, VT
22 June 2001

This early film comedy featured both a very young Rudolph Valentino and also an actress with the dubious name of Peaches Jackson. Valentino made seven films in 1919 and four of them are lost. This unfortunately is one of those lost films. No negative or print materials are known to exist.
