Sinners in Silk (1924) --- Lost Silent ?
11 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This 1924 silent romance/drama was produced by Metro-Goldwyn Pictures Corporation starring an impressive cast of silent stars, including, Adolphe Menjou, Eleanor Boardman, Conrad Nagel, Jean Hersholt, Virginia Lee Corbin, Anna Luther and Hedda Hopper. Sadly, it is now considered a lost silent and all I can offer the reader is this brief, original synopsis.

"This is a contribution to the new school of film play, a picturization of the activities of 'The New Generation' whose hymn is jazz, whose slogan is speed. This feature throws into relief the things for which our flappers and lounge lizards are criticized, even indulging in a discussion of 'free love.'

" Motion Picture News, 30 Aug 1924,

Aging roué Arthur Merrill ( Adolphe Menjou ) meets flapper Penelope Stevens ( Eleanor Boardman ) on an ocean liner and decides to undergo rejuvenation surgery so that he may enjoy life again. Transformed, he attends a wild jazz party given by Penelope and persuades her to visit his apartment, but he finds that she is a "good girl" and only flirting. After he gives Penelope a scare and a lecture, her old beau, Brock Farley ( Conrad Nagel ), enters with a letter to Arthur that reveals Brock to be his son. Arthur gladly steps aside, renounces his wild living, and returns to a simple life.
