"Don't Change Your Husband"
20 September 2010 | by tiffany_demeoSee all my reviews

The film "Don't Change Your Husband" was a romantic comedy that caught my eye and kept me interested. Being a female i'm more attracted to romantic films, that was apart of my interest in this film. Even though this film was a silent film it gave so much meaning and you could really understand what each character was feeling and how what their actions were. The actors played a really good part on their facial expressions and their body language. I wasn't sure how i was going to react to the silent film era but with each character really giving meaning through their facial and body expressions, it really pulled me in.

I also thought it was similar to todays life, even though it was produced in 1919, you could relate it to todays time, most women want the good looking man and in the end it doesn't turn out to be what you expected and you want what you did have at one point.
