The Long Chance (1922) - Unknown ?
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.
Harley P. Hennage ( Henry B. Walthall ), town gambler, takes under his protection Dana Corbaly ( Marjorie Daw ) when her widowed mother dies. He becomes suspicious of the motives of Bob McGraw ( Ralph Graves ), a young engineer who has come to town to investigate the mining claim of Dana's father, John Corbaly ( Leonard Clapham ). But events reveal that he is only the tool of Corbaly's former partner, capitalist T. Morgan Carey ( Boyd Irwin ). The land is retained by Dana, but in the process Bob is injured and Hennage is killed.
