Prodigal Daughters -- Lost Silent
18 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

"Swiftie" ( Gloria Swanson ) and Marjory Forbes ( Vera Reynolds ) are the daughters of J. D. Forbes ( Theodore Roberts ), wealthy owner of a locomotive works, and Mrs. Forbes ( Louise Dresser ), a club-woman who exercises no restraint over them, however, are attracted to the jazz life and eventually leave home in order to live the lives they please in Greenwich Village. Marjory marries songwriter Lester Hodges ( Robert Agnew ), who later deserts her. Swiftie attracts the interest of aviator Roger Corbin ( Ralph Graves ), employed by her father, and gambler Stanley Garside ( Charles Clary ). She loses a considerable sum to Garside, then promises to marry him in 60 days when she wagers her losses against marriage. In a Christmas Eve raid by prohibition agents, however, Swiftie escapes with Roger's help and follows Marjory's example by returning home. Both girls repent, and Swiftie finds happiness with Roger.

This 1923 society/drama was based on the novel, Prodigal Daughters by Joseph Hocking. Produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation, starring popular actress, Gloria Swanson, sadly it now remains a lost silent.
