The fifth of Constance Talmadge's thirteen starring vehicles for producer Lewis Selznick was A Pair of Silk Stockings. Based on a stage farce by Cyril Harcourt, the film casts Talmadge as Molly, the wife of wealthy Britisher Sam Thornhill (the "original" Harrison Ford). Though devoutly loyal to her husband, the capricious Molly can't seem to avoid getting herself into compromising situations. The limit comes when a pair of Molly's stockings find their way into the boudoir of another man. Despite her protestations of innocence, it takes our heroine several hilarious reels to win back her husband's affections. One of the funnier plot developments involves a haughty "high-born" lady (Wanda Hawley) who turns out to be a former barmaid.
