The Marriage Whirl (1925) -- Lost Silent ?
28 June 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Wild young Arthur Carleton ( Kenneth Harlan ) who has a strong penchant for jazz and gin, meets Marian Hale ( Corinne Griffith ) and takes her to a series of intemperate parties. Marian falls in love with Arthur, and when he promises to reform, she becomes his wife. Arthur plays the married part for a while; but he becomes increasingly bored, and soon their home is filled with booze and boisterousness. Marian's father sees her drunk and dies from the shock. Arthur and Marian go to Paris, and he neglects her, conducting a romance with Toinette ( Nita Naldi ), a cabaret dancer. Meanwhile, Marian renews a relationship with Tom Carrol ( Harrison Ford ), a quiet and cultured man who was once her suitor. Arthur returns home with Toinette, and Marian finds him making love to her. She orders them out and, in a distraught state, accidentally takes poison. Realizing her danger, she telephones Bob, who speeds to her in time to prevent an agonizing death. Arthur and Toinette are killed in an automobile accident, and Marian recovers and finds happiness at last with Bob.

This 1925 melodrama was produced by Corinne Griffith Productions and starred Corinne Griffith, one of the most popular film actresses of the 1920s and widely considered the most beautiful actress of the silent screen. Shortly after the advent of sound film, Griffith retired from acting. The loss of this film is a tragic one for silent cinema.
