This silent movie should be a cult classic. It is loads of fun to watch, and has a message that is strangely topical even today, since so many young women watch soaps and read cheap romance novels, and hence have unrealistic expectations of what love and romance and marriage should be like. Harrison Ford becomes adorable (once he wakes up to what he is about to lose) and Constance Talmadge is a doll. One can easily see why she was so popular in the 20's. Too bad so few of her films survive.
The Primitive Lover has lots of humorous touches (and title cards). You'll enjoy it if you're in the mood for something light and fun (but you probably won't like it if you are a hardcore feminist). Lol.
