For Husbands Only (1918)

Film details


Toni Wilde is led on by playboy Rolin Van D'Arcy. When she realises what sort of man he is and that he is not interested in marriage, she leaves him and angrily marries Samuel Dodge. She grows to love Samuel, but flirts with Rolin in order to humiliate him. Rolin attempts to take revenge by inviting Samuel to a play he is staging, supposedly a re-enactment of Toni's amorous escapades with himself. However, it backfires when Samuel, worn out after a hard day's work, falls asleep through the whole performance, much to Toni's relief.
