Gloria Swanson has a problem. Her husband, Thomas Meighan, has purchased her a negligee! The degenerate! And he listens to fox trot music, if you please! Thomas is soon driven into the waiting arms of Bebe Daniels. Realizing her mistake, Gloria dons designer duds in a bid to win him back.
Cecil B. DeMille’s best marital comedy (at least from what I have been able to see), this picture is spunky and fast-paced. Excellent performances by all the leads make the film memorable. Worth seeing for Bebe and Gloria’s costumes alone. Thank you, Natacha Rambova!
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.Meighan divorces Swanson for Daniels but then he has an accident, the ladies fight over who will take care of them, Swanson wins the fight and she and Meighan get back together. Whew!
If it were a dessert it would be: Croquembouche. Meltingly sweet trifles beautifully presented.
