A tongue-in-cheek morality play in which Gloria Swanson plays a spoiled maiden, rigid in her belief in the class system who always gets her way, until shipwrecked with her butler. Reduced to a state of primal existence--no longer servant and master but simply male and female--the folly of class becomes evident, as does the attraction between them

"Karl Von Austreim, a German-American living in the United States, bids farewell to his sweetheart, Angela Moore, and returns to Germany at the outbreak of World War I to fight for his native country. Count Jules de Destin of the French embassy, a rival for Angela's hand, also leaves, and shortly afterwards, Angela is called to France to care for her dying aunt. Her ship, the Veritania, is torpedoed, but she is rescued and finally arrives in France to find her aunt dead and the old chateau converted into a hospital. Having angrily forsaken her position of American neutrality, Angela agrees to conceal a telephone by which she may contact the retreating French, and after the Germans arrive, she begins sending messages to the Allies. Karl, transformed by the war, attacks Angela in the dark, but when the German colonel orders her to be shot as a spy, her former lover denounces the Kaiser and joins her before the firing squad. An attack by the French saves them, and they escape to a church, where Jules, as a reward for Angela's bravery, gives Karl his freedom and grants them both safe passage to America"--AFI catalog, 1911-20
The Cheat by Cecil B DeMille( Visual )

2 editions published between 1915 and 2008 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A New York socialite loses charity funds in her keeping on stock exchange speculation. In desperation she borrows from a wealthy Oriental who then seeks to assert property rights over her. This 'sex and sadism' melodrama, daring for its day, was handled with sufficient taste to win widespread approval. Today it is the blatant appeal to race prejudice that is more apparent. The Cheat is also notable for the care which De Mille took with lighting effects, putting white faces against black backgrounds

The Affairs of Anatol( Visual )

5 editions published between 1921 and 2000 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This tale about a hypocritical New York sophisticate, Anatol De Witt Spencer, was freely adapted from Schnitzler's play. His marriage is tested by his 'philandering', culminating in his encounter with Satan Synne, 'the world's wickedest woman', which only serves to confirm Anatol's inability to face the truth about himself and 'the ways of women'. The front-on compositions, colour tinted and filmed in Art Nouveau-designed sets are, in the words of Charles Higham, 'like a series of Beardsley illustrations to Oscar Wilde'
