I really wasn't THAT impressed by this one but I watched for Meighan and Adoree.  Luckily there is a custom made dvd floating around of this one on a torrent site I frequent.  Maybe the Warner Archive Collection will release it officially someday.

A very good clip!  Plus, the music adds to the scene beautifully.

This film premiered on TCM in November or December of 2004. It has been shown about 4 more times since than. Print is beautifully restored by Flicker Alley, but the movie is not on DVD. The story takes place shortly after the war, sometime between 1919 and 1921. Thomas Meighan is a decorated vet who returns home to find that He was never legally married to his shady sweetheart Rose played by Evelyn Brent. He is still trying to get over her. The Wild and fun loving Rose has no intention of getting over him, despite her marriage to the most dangerous man in town. Really a good picture.

What a wonderful clip! I love stories like this and wish I could see the whole movie. Great acting with remarkable subtlety by Adoree and Meighan. Thanks for posting.

I wish the video clip was longer.  This film looks interesting.  The romantic scenes will probably come later in the film.  Thomas Meighan was a wonderful actor, but he is largely forgotten today.  I remember seeing Meighan in Male and Female (1919) and Don't Change Your Husband (1919).  Renee Adoree looks beautiful as always.  Thanks for posting.
