What Every Woman Learns (1919) -- Status Unknown ?
4 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Amy Fortesque's ( Enid Bennett ) dying grandfather advises her to get all the joys out of life early, so she chooses to marry Dick Gaylord ( Irving Cummings ) because he is funny, rather than Walter Melrose ( Milton Sills ) , a serious-minded, reputable young lawyer who loves her. Gaylord turns out to be a heavy drinker and often cruelly batters Amy. He tricks Melrose into a meeting in Amy's room, and in a drunken state, shoots him. Amy seizes the gun and kills Gaylord, but she eventually is found innocent by justifiable homicide of the crime and seeks happiness with Melrose.

This 1919 drama was produced by Thomas H. Ince Productions and distributed by Famous Players-Lasky Corporation. Starring silent film actress Enid Bennet, sadly the status of this film is now listed as unknown.
