Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
Bobby Vernon (as Bobby) and Gloria Swanson (as Gloria) sail to India ("The land of elephants, and little clothes"), where they plan to elope. Upon arrival, Harem girls tempt Mr. Vernon, while a Rajah nabs Ms. Swanson. The Rajah has hundreds of wives, and wants Swanson in the group. Indians are upset, because only "toothless hags" are left for marriage. Vernon tries to rescue Swanson by switching clothes with her becoming a temporary "Harem Girl" himself, but his mission fails. So, it's up to canine Teddy, can the dog save Bobby and Gloria from the Indians?
"The Sultan's Wife" or "Caught in a Harem" is notable as the last Keystone Comedy. They didn't go out in style.
** The Sultan's Wife (9/30/17) Clarence G. Badger ~ Bobby Vernon, Gloria Swanson, Joseph Callahan
