DESERT NIGHTS. John Gilbert's last silent film is a sweaty tale of greed, lust and diamonds. He's a diamond mine foreman who gets kidnapped by some diamond thieves, a husband and wife duo of Ernest Torrence and Mary Nolan. Think about that casting and do the math.

THE EAGLE'S MATE by Anna Alice Chapin. A study in unintentional hilarity, this is one of those "kidnap the one you love" yarns with a heroine named (I kid you not) Anemone. It's probably a good thing that this was adapted into a silent film because there is no way in heck anyone could say that repeatedly. The hero's name is Lancer. Make of that what you will. Mary Pickford starred but don't blame her.
