Mae Murray in The Masked Bride (1925)

The Masked Bride is a 1925 American silent romantic drama film directed by Christy Cabanne and starring Mae Murray, Francis X. Bushman, and Basil Rathbone. It is currently a lost film.

Apache dancer Gaby (Mae Murray) defies the Prefect of Police (Roy D’Arcy) after accosting millionaire Grover (Francis X. Bushman). The underlying truth is that Gaby was driven to theft of rich men by her partner Antoine (Basil Rathbone).

Josef von Sternberg was originally hired to direct the film. After two weeks of filming, he became frustrated with Mae Murray’s behavior on the set and ordered the cameramen to film the rafters. He eventually walked out on the picture and was replaced by Christy Cabanne.
