" Marguerite Clark's Last Film "
2 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Scrambled Wives a 1921 silent was Marguerite Clarks last film and is now presumed lost. The 38 year old actress played Miss Mary Lucille Smith, a young girl expelled from a fashionable boarding school when John Chiverick ( Ralph Bunker ) is caught in her room during a late night party. In desperation she elopes with him, but her father has the marriage annulled and sends her off to Europe to forget the boy. When Mary returns from Europe two years later, she is now introduced as Mrs. Lucille Smith, a widow. She meets and falls in love with Larry McLeod ( Pierre Gendron ), however complications ensue at a house-party where Lucille and her first husband John try to keep his new wife and her boyfriend from finding out they were once married. Audiences did not accept the always childlike actresses racy role of a collegiate party girl, and the film was a flop. Acknowledging her film career of playing very young innocent girls was now numbered, and realizing the publics growing fondness for the wilder flapper type, she chose to retire from the screen at the height of her fame in 1921. Marguerite Clark spent her retirement very happily married to Harry Palmerson Williams until he was tragically killed in a plane crash in 1936.
