The World Apart (1917) -- Remains Lost ?
16 September 2016 | by mpickfordfanSee all my reviews

Important note: This is not a film review. I hope to be able to find and add as many silent film synopsis of films that have a survival status of unknown or presumed lost. I try to do as much research as I can and it is not my intention to deceive anyone, for sometimes the film does exist and some presumed lost films are still being discovered. I am more than delighted if someone has knowledge of a film listed as lost but survives, as I wish all silent films did survive. I hope the reader enjoys this brief synopsis.

Mining magnate Roland Holt ( John Burton ) sends his worthless son Clyde ( Eugene Palette ) to reform under the watchful eye of mining superintendent Bob Fulton ( Wallace Reid ). Instead of renouncing his irresponsible ways, however, Clyde attempts to rob the company safe. In order to prevent the robbery, Bob is forced to shoot Clyde, who loses his wedding ring while making his escape. Soon after, Clyde's new bride Beth ( Myrtle Stedman ) arrives, and learning that her husband has mysteriously disappeared, devotes her time to nursing Bob back to health. Beth falls in love with her patient until her discovery of Clyde's ring leads her to believe that the man she loves is probably her husband's murderer. The truth is revealed, however, when Clyde returns to be killed by the sheriff's bullet, leaving the lovers free to begin a new life together.

This 1917 drama/romance was directed by William Desmond Taylor, produced by Oliver Morosco Photoplay, starring Wallace Reid and Myrtle Stedman. The survival status of The World Apart (1917) is listed in the American Silent Feature Film Database as; No holdings located in archives.
