Leatrice Joy Starring in a DeMille Film.
24 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This comedy/drama from Cecil B. DeMille was Leatrice Joy's first starring film for the director after Gloria Swanson moved on. She plays a bored rich girl who is engaged to bored rich boy Conrad Nagel. The poor things have nothing to do but dress up and go to parties. They are sort of engaged.

But Joy is attracted to take-charge chauffeur Jack Mower and Nagel is fascinated by feisty laundress Edith Roberts. What to do? Things come to a head when bitchy sister Julia Faye forces the wedding announcement at a big party and Joy and Nagel meekly fall in line ... that is until fate throws the couple into the paths of their secret loves.

Wreckless Joy causes a train to smash her roadster, but she is saved by Mower. And Nagel runs off and marries Roberts. Society is shocked by the marriages. Joy is forced to live in a cold water tenement after Mower is fired, and Roberts is the butt of Faye's endless jokes as she tries to fit in with the society types.

Will love conquer all? Or will everyday life break up these mismatched marriages? It takes a blazing tenement fire to settle the issue.

The 4 stars all do well, with Leatrice Joy especially watchable. Julia Faye is notable as the sister. Co-stars include Theodore Roberts, Edythe Chapman, and Sylvia Ashton. Costumes and interior designs are sumptuous, and the Halloween pool party is not to be missed!
