Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Girls Don't Gamble proclaims the opening title of this 1921 drama. The film was based on a magazine story by George Weston, which was more accurately titled Girls Don't Gamble Anymore. Whatever the case, the plot concentrates not on a girl but a guy: poor-but-honest chauffeur David Butler (later a prominent director). Accused of robbing the department store owned by his employer, the chauffeur clears himself in a two-fisted finale. But here's the shocker: he doesn't marry the boss' daughter! Though cheaply produced, Girls Don't Gamble had plenty of "sock" entertainment value.
