Constance Talmadge stars here in a dual role: the unhappy wife (to a very young Ronald Coleman) and her vivacious sister. Terrific at 28 and at the peak of her career Talmadge was one of the funniest women on screen.
Director Sidney Franklin was a man with the perfect sense of humour for her and this, their finest film together, was written by Lubitsch’s scenario writer and has only recently been restored.
With live accompaniment by The European Silent Screen Virtuosi and hosted by stand up comedian Lucy Porter.
