Description by OLDIES.com:
Beau Brummel (John Barrymore) is a dandy, a ladies' man, a social-climbing commoner admitted to English royal circles. Lady Margery Alvanley (Mary Astor) adores him, but is forced to marry a richer man. Their doomed affair - and Brummel's fall into poverty and disgrace after a single unwise remark - forms the dramatic heart of this opulent 1924 silent classic. Barrymore, then at the peak of his screen power, personifies dash and brio. Astor, poised to become one of film's finest actresses, is achingly lovely. But it is more than talent and beauty that sets their love scenes aflame. The stars' torrid off-screen romance imbues their on-screen relationship with authentic, timeless passion.
After Brummel's beloved is forced to wed another, he decides to utilize his considerable charm, wit and personal demeanor in a game against the society that robbed him of his love. Brummel becomes the dandy of society - and then something goes wrong. Silent film with original organ score.
Silent adaptation of Clyde Fitch's play about George Bryan Brummel's rags-to-riches rise during the reign of Britain's George IV.
