Poor Men's Wives (1923) - Lost Silent ?
24 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Laura Bedford ( Barbara La Marr ) marries poor taxi driver Jim Maberne ( David Butler ), and her chum Claribel ( Betty Francisco ) marries wealthy Richard Smith-Blanton ( Richard Tucker ). When the two women accidentally meet sometime later, Laura eagerly accepts Claribel's invitation to an artists' ball. Because of her poverty, Laura is obliged to obtain a ball gown on approval. At the ball she repulses the advances of Smith-Blanton. When her children ruin the dress the next day, Laura takes her husband's savings to pay for it. Jim discovers the loss and orders Laura out. When, later, he comes upon her struggling against Smith-Blanton, Claribel tells him the whole story. Jim gives Smith-Blanton a beating and takes his wife home.

This 1923 silent drama was produced by B.P. Schulberg Productions, starring Barbara La Marr. The surviving status of Poor Men's Wives is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
