Split screen doubles Talmadge comedy
8 January 2005 | by radkinsSee all my reviews

It is sometimes hard to judge a film of the 1920's by today's standards because we don't have the same context. This film has no worse a goal than a zillion sitcoms from the 1950's in which a husband who takes his wife for granted is brought to his senses through the attentions and dismissal by another woman. In this case, the "other woman" is La Perry, Constance's characters twin sister who is a stage and cabaret star in Paris. Unlike "The Guardsman" or "Two Faced Woman" in this film the little wife HAS a twin sister, as they are seen in split screen scenes together.

It is a modest morality tale with the erring husband returning to the faithful wife.

Of note in this film are the costumes by Adrian, later M.G.M.'s premiere designer. In those scenes which feature La Perry's stage act, we can see a glimpse of what Adrian had brought to Irving Berlin's Music Box Revues of 1922 - 1925 and his other Broadway credits of the early 1920's before going to Hollywood to design for Valentino in 1924.
