Description by OLDIES.com:
The Average Woman stars Pauline Garon, a Broadway actress whose trim figure got her work in films as a body double for Lillian Gish and Sylvia Breamer. Spotted by Cecil B. DeMIlle, he cast her in Adam's Rib (1923) after which she shot to fame. Garon co-starred with Gloria Swanson in The Love of Sunya (1927). Her career was curtailed in the 1930s when she was tragically struck by polio. Leading man Harrison Ford also came from the Broadway stage and quickly found success in Hollywood, appearing in nearly 100 films between 1915 and 1932. He is of no relation to the contemporary actor of the same name.
BONUS: Smith's Picnic (BW, SILENT, 1926): The accident-prone Smith family (Raymond McKee, Ruth Hiatt, and Mary Ann Jackson) head to the beach in this Mack Sennett comedy directed by Alf Goulding. There they spoil a picnic held by "The Optimist's' Club," quickly turning the members into pessimists. This reconstructed version features racy scenes of starlet Mildred June in lingerie and having her bathing suit torn off by a fishing pole that were only included in prints shown in Germany. Starring Raymond McKee, Ruth Hiatt and Mary Ann Jackson. Directed by Alf Goulding.

Based on 22 ratings.
Despite the somewhat misleading DVD cover, I found the main feature (The Average Woman) to be entertaining with decent acting.
