Nice People (1922) -- Lost Silent ?
18 June 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This 1922 comedy/romance was filmed by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation, starring Wallace Reid, Bebe Daniels and Conrad Nagel, three very popular stars of the day. Sadly this film's whereabouts are listed as unknown and hopefully a copy survives and resurfaces, for now all I can offer the reader is a brief synopsis.

Theodora (Teddy) Gloucester ( Bebe Daniels ) is known in the jazz age group as one of the " nice people." One night she and her companion Scotty White ( Conrad Nagel ) are stranded in a farmhouse, and she struggles to fight off his intoxicated advances. Meanwhile, Captain Billy Wade ( Wallace Reid ) has also been seeking shelter and enters the farmhouse , saving Teddy from Scotty's unwanted attentions. However, a scandal results for the girl when her father discovers her the next morning alone with Scotty. After being snubbed by her so called friends, Teddy settles down and agrees to become an old-fashioned wife to Billy.
