Nelly Wayne ( Pauline Frederick ) is so intent on her writing career, that she neglects her appearance and her husband, Wayne (Huntly Gordon). Jill Wetherell (Mae Busch), who is looking for a rich husband, finds Wayne to be easy prey and Nelly catches them together. She divorces Wayne and travels to Europe. Jill, however, throws Wayne over for Perley Rex (Conrad Nagel). Nelly becomes a writer of note under the pseudonym Mrs. Paramor. She also takes advantage of her easy access to the latest Paris fashions and becomes a truly stylish and beautiful woman. Along the way, she meets Rex and discovers he is married to Jill. They all take the same ship back to the States, and while Jill is seasick in her room, Nelly steals Rex's affection. When Jill goes to "the other woman" to beg for her husband, she is surprised to see that it's Nelly. Nelly lets Jill have Rex, but she realizes she has never stopped loving Wayne. She calls for him, and they are reunited.
This 1924 silent drama was based on the novel Mrs. Paramor by Louis Joseph Vance, produced and released through Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. This sophisticated drama was considered quite risqué for the time, a story about husbands being lured away from wives. It starred very popular silent screen stars, Pauline Frederick, Mae Busch, and Conrad Nagel, along with a bonus scene of stars. The character Nelly hosts a banquet attended by many MGM stars, including Mae Murray, Norma Shearer, John Gilbert, and Aileen Pringle. Tragically, Married Flirts now remains a lost silent film.
