~House Peters & Virginia Valli~
~Plot Synopsis~
Based on Langdon McCormick's 1919 play, this silent melodrama stars Matt Moore and House Peters as
War veterans sharing a cabin in the Canadian Northwest. A French trapper (Josef Swickard) and his
daughter (Virginia Valli) seek shelter from both the Northwest Mounted Police and the elements.
Swickard dies from a bullet wound and the two war buddies fight over Valli, who prefers Peters. The
three soon suffer from a food shortage, and Peters gallantly offers to brave the Canadian winter and seek
help. Valli starts after him in the storm, but Moore stops her and selflessly takes his friend's place. The
Storm featured a spectacular forest fire sequence. McCormick's play was remade by Universal in 1930
starring Lupe Velez, Paul Cavanagh, and William Boyd.
