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.
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.
