Storyline

Yvonne Montford is a sophisticated and cultured aristocrat and, while somewhat philosophical about the many loves of her philandering husband, Philip, is also somewhat bitter about it. Yvonne finally trips him up just as he is about to leave for Biarritz with Lulu, a chorus girl. Finding the tickets in his pocket, Philip tells her they were meant for her, and he will be joining her in a few days. She heads for Biarritz and philandering Phillip gives the other ticket to Jean Corot, a writer who is quiet and trustworthy. But on the train and at the resort Yvonne and Jean are constantly thrown together, and when philandering Philip arrives a few days later, Yvonne and Jean are very much in love with each other. Philip offers Yvonne a divorce, she accepts and then she and Jean are married. But La Belle Toulaize, a Parisian actress and vamp-first-class shows up to ensure the marriage ceremony doesn't provide the 'Finis.' Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

The Popular Sin (1926) -- Status Incomplete
1 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

George Montfort( Philip Strange ), involved in an extra-marital affair with Lulu ( Iris Gray ), an actress, plans a trip to Biarritz with her, but when his wife, Yvonne ( Florence Vidor ), finds the tickets, he swears he bought them for her. George gives the second ticket to Jean Corot ( Clive Brook ), a playwright, and upon their return he learns that his wife is madly in love with Jean. George gives them his blessing, and they are married. One day, Alphonse Martin ( André Beranger ) brings La Belle Toulaise ( Greta Nissen ) to their home, and she insists that Jean write a play for her. At the premiere of The Popular Sin, Yvonne applauds her husband's triumph but finds him backstage in the arms of the siren. A divorce is arranged, and Jean soon finds himself married to La Belle Toulaise but is soon disillusioned to discover that she is having an affair with George Montfort. Realizing his love for Yvonne, Jean decides to divorce La Belle Toulaise.

This 1926 romance/comedy/drama was produced by Famous Players-Lasky Corporation and starred several popular silent screen stars, Florence Vidor, Clive Brook and Greta Nissen. Sadly only a fragmentary print exists in the Library of Congress film archive.
