La Tosca (1918) - Lost
14 June 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Floria Tosca ( Pauline Frederick ), a famous Italian opera singer, suspects that her lover, Mario Cavaradossi ( Jules Raucourt ), is unfaithful and secretly follows him to his villa on the outskirts of Rome. La Tosca is relieved to discover that Mario is harbouring not another woman but Cesare Angelotti ( Henry Hebert ), a political prisoner. Her relief turns to despair, however, when Baron Scarpia ( Frank Losee ), Rome's tyrannical chief of police, arrives and demands that Mario turn Cesare over to the authorities under penalty of torture. He refuses, but La Tosca, unable to endure Mario's screams, confesses. All three are arrested, and the baron threatens to have Mario shot unless La Tosca gives herself to him. She consents, but when Scarpia approaches her, she stabs him. Finding that Mario has been shot despite the baron's promise, she leaps from a high tower to her death.

This 1918 silent drama was based on the play La Tosca by Victorien Sardou, produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation and starring the popular actress, Pauline Frederick. Sadly, La Tosca now remains a lost silent film.
