Performers, Cast and Crew:
This double-pack contains two films by Hollywood heavyweight Cecil B. Demille. The first film stars Gloria Swanson, just one of the relative-unknowns whose career was launched by the legendary director.
Cecil B. Demille's DON'T CHANGE YOUR HUSBAND marks the director's first collaboration with Gloria Swanson. Here, Swanson plays Leila Porter, a woman who decides it's time to upgrade her boring, negligent husband (Elliot Dexter) for a newer breed. But when her new boy-toy Schuyler Van Sutphen (Lew Cody) is caught messing around with the maid (played by Julia Faye, one of Demille's many reported mistresses), Porter decides she wants her old husband back. This fully restored edition includes original music performed by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra.
In the early Demille film THE GOLDEN CHANCE, a young woman named Mary (Cleo Ridgeley) marries an alcoholic criminal (H.B. Carpenter) in spite of her upscale family's protests. Living in relative squalor, Mary takes a job making dresses for a rich woman (Edythe Chapman) who just happens to be planning a dinner party involving a millionaire bachelor (Wallace Reid). When one of the party's guests is unable to attend, Mary shows up in her place and begins a Cinderella-inspired journey. This fully restored and digitally mastered edition features a score performed by Rodney Sauer.
