Movie Info

Maintaining the exhausting pace he had established when he came to America in 1914, director Maurice Tourneur helmed no fewer than nine films in 1917. Number Two on Tourneur's schedule was The Whip, based on a popular British stage play of the period. A racetrack yarn, the film has no shortage of fascinating characters and absorbing plot developments. The story reaches its climax as the heroine rides to victory in the place of her jockey brother, who has been strong-armed into throwing the race by the villain of the piece. A spectacular train wreck and a less spectacular but no less dramatic "interrupted wedding" sequence were among the film's many highlights. Billed first in the cast is Irving Cummings, soon to become an accomplished director in his own right.
