Storyline

The Sardou play begins with this girl's life as the young wife of a man nearing forty, kind enough to his bride, but more or less absorbed in his serious work. She has dreamed of romantic love, intoxicating adventure, and tumultuous passions only to find none of these things in retirement with a good husband. She decided that her existence has been wrecked and ruined, and gets it into her foolish head that the only remedy is a divorce. There is a lover handy, her husband's cousin Adhemar, French in his ambition to have an "affair" with some charming married woman, and equally French in his thrift; he is a poor young man in no situation to marry any such extravagant young lady. The clear-headed husband enters into a little conspiracy with some friends to let his bored young wife have her own way, ostensibly yielding to her wishes, and he even makes things as easy and comfortable as possible for the unsuspecting lover, inviting him to the house, and announcing that he has even provided ...

The humor of the story lies entirely with Sardou
15 November 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

One of Sardou's most profitable productions, "Divorcons," affords just such comedy opportunity as would be naturally selected for Miss Burke, and her characterization is a delightful one, not at all marred by an injected act of preparation, depicting the romantic tendency of a young girl brought up in the restricted environment of a French convent. The humor of the story lies entirely with Sardou, and the wit as well. Where his lines are not followed the subtitles are dreadfully out of the atmosphere of the product. This atmosphere is, however, admirably preserved in the last scene. Miss Burke is supported by a fine cast, notably John Miltern, Armand Kalise, and Pina Nesbit. - The Moving Picture World, May 4, 1918
