Overview

Synopsis

The Whip
Director Maurice Tourneur left in all the thrills of this Drury Lane melodrama, originally written by Cecil Raleigh and Henry Hamilton, and added some of his own. All the classic elements are here -- there's the villainous bookmaker (Alfred Hemming) who wants to fix a horse race and ruin the romance between the hero, Hubert Brancaster (Irving Cummings) and the heroine, Diana Beverly (Alma Hanlon). The villain is helped in his schemes by the worldly Mrs. D'Aquila (June Elvidge), while her lover, Baron Satoris (Paul McAllister) betrays the jockey's sister, Myrtle (Jean Dumar). Myrtle has perhaps the best title card in this silent: when Baron Satoris proposes that her brother (Dion Titheradge) throw the race, she indignantly replies, "He shall not sell his honor to purchase mine!" But even though Myrtle's brother gets pulled from his horse just before the race, Diana jumps on and rides to victory, thus saving her lover's hefty wager. This film, played purely for fun and excitement, is melodrama at its very best. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi
