Trivia

While given her first chance to direct a complete film, Lillian Gish was dismayed to find Paramount's new East Coast studio at Mamaroneck, NY uncompleted. She was also assigned the daunting task of supervising the studio's construction as well as directing her sister Dorothy Gish in this film. Dorothy married her co-star, James Rennie, after production wrapped. See more »

A Tragic Loss For Silent Cinema
19 September 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After she marries Jack Valentine ( James Rennie ), Janie Wakefield ( Dorothy Gish ) discovers that her husband's reputation as a flirt is well deserved when she sees him riding in a taxi with a strange woman. Janie hesitates to believe that the man was Jack until he falls victim to the wiles of a fascinating widow who lives across the hall. After a tempestuous scene, Janie decides to forgive him until she overhears Jack making a date with a manicurist. Furious, Janie returns to her father and, accepting a position in his Wall Street firm, becomes a successful businesswoman. Jack begs her to return, but only after he threatens suicide does Janie decide that her husband has been remodelled.

This 1920 silent comedy starring Dorothy Gish was produced by the The New Art Film Company and filmed at D.W. Griffith's Mamaroneck Studios in Mamaroneck, New York. It was Lillian Gish's only film as director and tragically now remains a lost silent.
