One of the virtues of this is that it is enacted by a short cast with the principal trio of players always in the foreground. They are Marie Prevost, Monte Blue and John Roche. Clara Bow triumphs in the role of a lawyer’s steno, and Willard Louis manages to exact much from the role of attorney.
The story is decidedly Parisian in its flavor. The Fleurys are married, the husband is a business man, the wife is somewhat fond of music, and Maurice, the musician, is fond of the Wife. This brings about a flirtation, and finally the husband decides that he will not stand in the way of his wife’s happiness, so he arranges for a divorce with his wife to receive his home and half his fortune.
This naturally delights the musician, who will then marry her and have a made-to-order home and income at his disposal. But the wife in reality loves her husband and wants him back. It is the touch of arranging for the divorce evidence that creates much laughter.
It is well acted, delightfully directed and edited without a wasted foot of film.
