Hush Money is a lost[1] 1921 American silent drama film directed by Charles Maigne and written by Charles Maigne and Samuel Merwin. The film stars Alice Brady, George Fawcett, Larry Wheat, Harry Benham, and Jerry Devine. The film was released in November 1921, by Paramount Pictures.[2][3]


As described in a film magazine,[4] Evelyn Murray (Brady), daughter of powerful New York financier Alexander Murray (Fawcett), runs down a poor boy with her car, and her fiance persuades her to flee before determining the extent of his injuries. Her father pays hush money to the only witness of the accident to thwart her determination to admit her connection. Conscience stricken, Evelyn breaks her engagement, leaves home, and takes up charity work under the supervision of the young Bishop Deems (Benham). Eventually she is victorious in the ensuing conflict of wills and brings about her father's reformation and the renewal of her engagement.
