Storyline

Vera Blaine, a young woman in the deep South, is passionate and romantic. So, she's easy prey for José Dalmarez, a novelist visiting from Brazil. Vera refuses a proposal from Hugh, her upright guardian, thinking she will marry Dalmarez. She writes him love letters and inscribes a book to him with loving words. When she learns that his intentions do not include marriage, she spurns him, and he returns to Brazil. Several years pass, with his behavior unchanged: he courts a local beauty, Inez, to the ire of her brother. Work then takes Dalmarez back to the States, where he encounters a now-married Vera and sets out to blackmail her. Will he have his foul way? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The film was originally a vehicle for Marguerite Namara. After Valentino achieved stardom, the film was cut by approximately half its original running time with the new edit favoring Valentino. Only the edited version is known to exist. The film had its American television debut on Turner Classic Movies on May 22, 2006. See more »

Crazy Credits

Since the only surviving footage of this film is 3 reels long out of an original 6-reel movie, the listing of the cast credits and the crew credits are taken from the AFI Catalogue. The print itself follows the cast listing closely, with only the butler Arthur Earle not identified in the intertitles. There are no crew credits listed in the surviving print. See more »

Stolen Moments (1920)

** (out of 4)

A rather dull and lifeless silent melodrama about a woman (Marguerite Namara) torn between a Latin playboy (Rudolph Valentino) and a hardworking man (Albert L. Barrett). This was originally produced to show off Namara and was released as a six-reeler but after Valentino became a star the studio went back and cut most of the story out making this a three-reeler that showed off the famous star more. With that in mind, it's really no shock that the film makes very little sense and this is certainly true during the final act, which involves a murder and an investigation. The six-reel version is now lost so this "Valentino version" is all that's left. Once again, I can't say I was too impressed with the silent icon but I do plan on getting to some of his more famous roles. Namara isn't any better in the lead but Barrett comes across with a good performance and is the main reason to see this.
