Fun Size Review: The Woman in the Suitcase (1920)

I know what you’re thinking but this film involves absolutely no body parts hidden in luggage. Sorry.

It’s actually a picture of a woman in a suitcase and how Enid Bennett attempts to track down her identity. She suspects that her father is having an affair, you see, and she means to bring him back home. It’s a lightweight trifle, kind of a Parent Trap for grownups, but Bennett is terrific and I love her assertive heroine. (For trivia buffs, future director Rowland V. Lee plays Bennett’s love interest.)


How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

Bennett succeeds in convincing her father to break off the affair and triumphantly returns home with him. She also lands Rowland because she is just that awesome.

If it were a dessert it would be: Boozy Banana Cream Pie Milkshake. It’s silly, it’s frothy, it’s fun.

Availability: Released on DVD.
