Alice Darvil ( Rosemary Davies ), an innocent and simple girl of
sixteen, lives with her harsh father in a sequestered country cottage.
Walter Butler ( Harrison Ford ), an author, is caught in a storm while
on a walking tour and seeks shelter for the night in the Darvil home.
He is attracted to Alice, and, when he meets her later in a neighboring
village (after she has been thrown out of her house), he takes her to
live with him. He soon marries her, but, when he is forced to leave for
a business trip, she runs away. A child, Mary Jane, is born to her, and
she becomes a domestic in the house of Mrs. Leslie, a charitable woman
of wealth. There she meets Colonel Anderson, a wealthy old man whom she
also marries. Alice and the colonel drift apart and, when he dies, he
leaves his considerable fortune to Mary Jane. Walter Butler, who has
become a recluse, writing books of spiritual consolation under the name
of Malvern, tires of the solitary life and decides to open his home to
visitors. Mary Jane, not knowing that he is her father, comes to visit
Butler's home, and Butler falls in love with her. They are about to be
married, when Butler discovers that Mary Jane is his daughter. Butler
is then reconciled with Alice, and Mary Jane marries her young
This 1925 melodrama was considered a low budget B-movie , that featured some some well-known film names of the period, including Harrison Ford, Maurice Costello, Montagu Love, Mary Thurman and Rosemary Davies, a sister of Marion Davies in her only film. Sadly, The Mad Marriage is now a lost silent film.
