Miss Hobbs (1920) -- Lost Film ?
21 January 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Miss Hobbs ( Wanda Hawley ) a rich flighty girl, with very modern ideas, persuades her girl friend, Beulah Hackett ( Helen Jerome Eddy ) to leave her husband Percy ( Jack Mulhall ) and her other friend, Millicent Farey ( Julanne Johnston ) is convinced she should break her engagement to George Jessup ( Walter Hiers ) and join Miss Hobb's cause. Determined to teach Miss Hobbs a lesson, Percy and George appeal to millionaire Wolff Kingsearl ( Harrison Ford ) to tame the feminist. He makes a bet with them, that he will kiss Miss Hobbs within a month, Wolff pretends to be an invalid. Miss Hobbs maternal instincts kick in and she takes care of the feeble Wolff, until she discovers the bet. She rebukes his deception, until Wolff finally succeeds in convincing her that he really loves her. Miss Hobbs then rejects feminism in favour of matrimony.

Miss Hobbs was directed by competent actor Donald Crisp and starred petite blonde actress, Wanda Hawley, along with popular leading man, Harrison Ford. This 1920 comedy is now listed as unknown and hopefully a surviving copy someday resurfaces.
