The Woman God Forgot is a 1917 American silent romance film directed by Cecil B. DeMille.[1] A copy of the film is in the George Eastman House Motion Picture Collection.[1]


The Exhibitors Herald, a trade magazine for independent cinemas, provides a description of the film.[2] Moctezuma (Hatton), the Aztec king, resents the intrusion of the Spanish who have come to convert the Aztecs to Christianity. But Tecza (Farrar), daughter of the king, loves Alvarado (Reid), one of the Spanish captains, and she allows the Spanish soldiers to enter the palace. After a terrific battle, she is the only surviving Aztec and the Spanish allow her to depart in peace. Alvarado then comes wooing the last of the Aztecs and wins her.
