You Can't Fool Your Wife (1923) -- Lost Film ?
22 March 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Garth McBride ( Lewis Stone ) a wealthy stockbroker and his wife, Edith ( Leatrice Joy ), accept an invitation to visit friends in Florida. However, a flirtation between Garth and Ardrita Saneck ( Nita Naldi ), the wife of a famous surgeon, soon develops into a more serious relationship, and they decide to take an airplane ride to Nassau. When they miss their return trip and must remain overnight in Nassau, Edith returns to New York alone and finds work as a nurse. Later, Garth is seriously injured by a business rival (Russell Fenton) and is taken to Dr. Saneck ( Paul McAllister ), who is made aware that his patient is his wife's lover. When Dr. Saneck realizes, however, that Garth is also the husband of the attending nurse (Edith), he saves him. Apologies and explanations are exchanged, and both couples are reunited.

This 1923 drama was produced by Famous Players-Lasky Corporation with some on location filming in the Bahamas. Sadly, this silent starring the beautiful actress Leatrice Joy, is now considered a lost film.
