Movie Info

The stars of this picture -- Vera Sisson and Frank Newburg -- are long forgotten; not so one of the supporting player Rodolpho di Valentina, who as Rudolph Valentino would become the most famous Latin lover of the silent era. Fiske McMillan (Edward Jobson) is a wealthy contractor, and his daughter Mary (Sisson) is in love with Douglas McKee, an ambitious young lawyer (Newburg). Mary's stepmother (Kathleen Kirkham) has been carrying on an affair with the roguish Count Roberta di San Fraccini (Valentino) and they plan to run off together as soon as they can come up with the money. At first the Count tries to blackmail McMillan, but when this fails, he forces Mary to marry him so that he can use the marriage settlement to run off with her stepmother. Mrs. McMillan, however, becomes jealous and worries that her lover will back out. She tries to disfigure him with acid, and they have a violent struggle while riding in a car. There is an accident and Mrs. McMillan is killed. The Count escapes, but McKee is able to find a legal loophole that will enable Mary to rid herself of him. A single woman once again, Mary is now able to wed the man she always loved.

Audience Reviews for Married Virgin


★★★ (out of four) Enjoyable silent screen era film that is most notable as being one of Rudolph Valentino's first pictures. He obviously has star potential even in a more villainous role, but the story is also fun. A young woman is having an affair with a Count (Valentino). They plan to run off and get married against her father's wishes. The count, however really has his eye on the girl's stepmother. There are some wicked twists that come about. If you're a fan of silent films, this is a little hidden delight to check out. [IMG][/IMG]

This film stars Rudolph Valentino in one of his first films. The movie was a delight. The story was flawless and, boy, Rudolph was handsome. When womanizer Count Roberto meets a wealthy wife of a business man. The two plan to extort money from her husband. The plan-to include the daughter. It's worth a see, especially if you haven't seen a silent film.
