Overview

Even with its share of sumptuous sets and domestic mixups, this comedy-drama was not typical for director Cecil B. DeMille. Plus, the class-conscious attitude reflected the attitudes of the pre-World War I era -- mores started changing during the 1920s. A young society couple, Iris Van Suydam (Leatrice Joy) and Dick Prentiss (Conrad Nagel), are engaged to be married. But when the Van Suydam chauffeur, Tom McGuire (Jack Mower), saves Iris when her car is stuck on a railroad track, she impulsively marries him. Likewise, Prentiss falls for Shamrock O'Day (Edith Roberts), the daugh ter of his family's laundress (Sylvia Ashton). The two couples, however, are woefully mismatched -- Prentiss can't cope with Shamrock's love for Coney Island and McGuire's Saturday night bathing ritual (the only night he scrubs down) gives Iris pause. A tenement fire breaks out in which Prentiss saves Iris and McGuire saves Shamrock and everyone realizes they are happier with those of their own class. The result is two divorces and two weddings.
