It's hard to imagine a contemporary audience sitting politely through this antique filming of a Belasco stage piece of the day and film freaks will be disappointed to find that top starred Marsh (Griffith's "Little Dear One" from INTOLERANCE) has only a small screen time where she raises simpering to art proportions.
Mainly played in the entrance hall of the lead's mansion which must correspond to the stage decor, it follows the uninvolving exploits of a Bachelors' Club which pays its debt to society by adopting WW1 orphans one of whom turns out to be Miss Marsh and one of whom turns out to be twins (!)
This is an early work of William Seiter who slogged away through another three decades. He moves it along quite well and for those curious about silent movies and able to ignore the preposterous material it has some charm.
