Innocent is a 1921 British silent drama film directed by Maurice Elvey and starring Madge Stuart, Basil Rathbone and Edward O'Neill. The film marked the screen debut of Rathbone, with his casting as a villainous figure pointing towards the sort of roles he would play in later British and Hollywood films.[1] The film was made by Stoll Pictures, Britain's leading film company of the era, at Cricklewood Studios.


A naive country girl comes to the city, where she is seduced by a cynical artist.
