~The Fast Set~
1924
~Plot Synopsis~
Novelist Richard Sones (Elliot Dexter) prefers his literary buddies while his wife, Margaret (Betty
Compson), prefers a "fast set." Their differences widen even further when suave Ernest Steele (Adolphe
Menjou) lends a sympathetic ear and romantic overtures to Margaret. Sones doesn't help the situation
when he brings Mona, a prostitute (ZaSu Pitts), to one of Margaret's parties, insisting that she's a
professional in a room of amateurs. Margaret decides to divorce Sones, which disturbs the urbane
Steele, who did not plan on marrying her. He goes to Sones and gives him a few lessons on how to win
back his wife. Sones follows Steele's advice and does just that.
