Storyline

Prince Sebastian of Lurania is forced to go into hiding when German forces invade his country. His niece, Countess Therese, is an ambulance driver with the French army, and one day she hears from her uncle, who requests that she meet him in a small town in Maine and bring the crown jewels with her. Unfortunately, a jewel thief finds out about the meeting and makes a deal with the Luranian pretender to the throne: he will steal the jewels and he can keep them if he kidnaps and turns over the Countess to the usurper.

Ethel Clayton Is Missing in Action
12 December 2010 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Based on the 1917 novel "Green Fancy" by George Barr McCutcheon, this wartime adventure film was a vehicle for pretty, popular Ethel Clayton, ranked as favorite star #20 by "Motion Picture Magazine" in 1918. She was also liked by their film critic, Hazel Simpson Naylor; although her February, 1919 column complained, "Why WILL Paramount cast that fine actress, Ethel Clayton, in wild melodrama? She suffered thru the same kind of plots at World. We hoped for different things when she signed her new contract… 'The Mystery Girl' is entertaining, dealing as it does with a countess in war work, spies, murders and love, but Miss Clayton's unusual talents seem rather wasted." The film is unavailable, but the novel upon which it is based can be readily found online.
