Partially Survives
11 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Jennie Wetherby ( Constance Talmadge ) and her song-plugging husband, Jimmy ( Jack Mulhall ), agree that if either ever tires of wedded life, the presentation of a bowl of goldfish to the other will signify the end of their relationship. After Count Nevski ( Edward Connelly ) convinces Jennie that she could be a great lady if she would choose the right husbands, the Wetherbys quarrel and Jimmy gets the goldfish. Jennie successfully climbs the social ladder by marrying Herman Krauss ( Jean Hersholt ), then J. Hamilton Powers ( William Conklin ); and she is about to announce her engagement to the Duke of Middlesex ( Frank Elliott ) when Jimmy achieves success. Their old love wins out, they are reunited with Krauss's help, and the Duke gets the goldfish.

This 1924 silent comedy was based on the play The Goldfish by Gladys Unger and filmed by Constance Talmadge Film Company, distributed through First National Pictures. Only a partial part of this film now survives.
