Enchantment is a thoroughly delightful bit of froth, tailor-made for the talents of Marion Davies. Our heroine plays Ethel, the spoiled-brat daughter of millionaire Mr. Hoyt (Tom Lewis). Inspired by a staging of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew, Mr. Hoyt decides that a rough-and-tumble he-man might be able to straighten out his daughter. To that end, the millionaire hires Ernest Eddison (Forrest Stanley), the actor playing Petruchio in Shrew. Ernest talks Ethel into auditioning for an amateur production of Sleeping Beauty, then runs her roughshod during rehearsals. Ethel is on the verge of exploding when Ernest finally wins her over with a lulu of a third-act kiss.
