The Morals of Marcus Ordeyne (novel)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Morals of Marcus Ordeyne is a 1905 British novel written by William John Locke. Along with his next book, The Beloved Vagabond, it was a major success.[1]

Plot summary

A middle aged schoolmaster unexpectedly inherits money and a title. Walking through a park he finds a young girl weeping - she's a harem girl who has been abandoned by her would-be lover after escaping from Syria. Not knowing what else to do, Sir Marcus brings her to his home.


In 1907, the novel was adapted by Locke into a play. In 1915, the first silent version was made with Marie Doro who starred in the 1907 play. In 1921, a silent film adaptation was made. In 1935, Miles Mander directed The Morals of Marcus, with Ian Hunter in the title role.
