Mr. Merrick, I married your son because I loved him and thought he loved me. I felt that if he worked on his own for us both it would make a man of him. I put him to the test and he failed me!

Gloria Swanson assisted on the screenplay of her first talker along with director Goulding and the result was a huge critical success and audience hit which garnered Swanson an Academy Award nomination. Today, is seems like a silly soaper. Working girl marries rich husband only to have the one-night marriage annulled by her father-in-law. Of course, Swanson is already pregnant, but suffers in silence and raises the child alone. And that's only reel one. Lots more self-sacrifice to come. A fine restoration print by the George Eastman House viewed at Cinefest in Syracuse, NY in March of 2003. Corny enough to be entertaining to some of the crowd.
