~The Daring Years~
1923
~Mildred Harris~
~Plot Synopsis~
This independently made drama featured some notable cast members -- Charles Emmett Mack was a
D.W. Griffith protégé (although he had the misfortune to earn this credit co-starring with Carol
Dempster), Tyrone Power Sr. was a thespian who was father to future film star Tyrone Power, and Clara
Bow, in one of her first films, has a bit part. Even leading lady Mildred Harris had a couple of good credits
-- she acted for Cecil B. DeMille and, for a while, co-starred in Charles Chaplin's private life as his first
wife. John Browning (Mack) is a sheltered college youth who refuses to listen to the wise counsel of his
mother (Mary Carr). He gets involved with cabaret entertainer Susie LaMotte (Harris), not realizing that
she's merely toying with him. She also has another beau, fighter Jim Moran (Joe King). Browning walks in
on Susie and Moran and the two men have an argument. Moran accidentally kills himself with his own
weapon, but Browning is tried for his murder and convicted. He is saved from the electric chair only
because a bolt of lighting knocks out the power. This gives Moran's wife time to force Susie into
confessing the truth. As a result, the governor pardons Browning and frees him.
