Actor/comedian Lucy Porter introduces this silent romantic farce in which Marie Prevost meets, falls for and marries Harrison Ford (Hollywood’s first of that name) only to divorce him after she discovers he’s secretly bought some daring female underwear which she believes is for another woman. She is mistaken, of course, but is it too late to win him back? With Daan van den Hurk accompanying on piano.
