~The Goldfish~
1924
~Constance Talmadge & Zasu Pitts~
~Plot Synopsis~
Pert comedienne Constance Talmadge is virtually the whole show in Goldfish. A newly married husband
(Jack Mulhall) and wife (Talmadge) make a curious agreement: should either party want to terminate the
relationship, that party will present the other one with a bowl of goldfish (there has to be some
justification for the film's title, hasn't there?) One bowl and two husbands later, the wife is at the pinnacle
of social respectability, while her songwriter ex-husband is still struggling away in poverty. Eventually,
her first husband achieves success, whereupon the woman presents her latest fiance with a bowl full of
fish and returns to hubby number one.
