Description by

Bursting with romantic fantasies gleaned from the stream of trashy novels she devours, Phyllis Tomley begs husband Hector to divorce her, so that she can marry dashing writer Donald Wales. Not wanting to keep Phyllis from happiness, a despondent Hector reluctantly agrees. Chief Bluebottle, Hector's Indian friend, grabs his brooding pal and slaps sense back into him. The Chief convinces Hector to fight like a man. What's more, he will teach him the savage way to take his woman back!

Beautiful Constance Talmadge performed in her first comedy motion picture short, In Bridal Attire in 1914. She rose to fame with her portrayal of the Mountain Girl in D.W. Griffith's classic, Intolerance (1916). In 1919, Griffith re-issued her segment as The Fall Of Babylon, removing her death scene and re-shooting a happy ending for the popular character. She is best remembered for comedic roles in productions such as A Pair Of Silk Stockings (1918), Happiness A La Mode (1919) and Wedding Bells (1921). With the advent of sound, she retired from movies an extremely wealthy woman.

Product Description:
