Well made, though not exactly funny.
23 May 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I am going to be more charitable with "Heads...and Women Who Use Them" simply because for its time, it's very well done. In 1916, films were often very short and overacted. However, this Jacques Feyder film is rather subtle and artistic--and at 36 minutes, it's a rather long movie for its day. My only misgiving is that I think it's supposed to be a domestic comedy but really is rather short on laughs.

The film begins with a woman receiving a letter from her sister. It seems the sister is worried because her husband is paying way too much attention to an Italian princess. So, the two sisters come up with a plan to keep him from roaming--convince him that if it's okay for him to stray, it's equally okay for her to do the same.

While the plan is insane (mostly because you wonder what might REALLY happen in such a situation), the film is so very well done that you can't help but admire the cast and direction. It really is made quite well. Worth seeing.
