Julia Dean, who spent the twilight of her career playing eccentric old ladies in such films as Curse of the Cat People, was the star of the Thomas H. Ince production Matrimony. It all begins when Mrs. Rossmore (Dean) discovers that her husband (Howard Hickman) has begun "playing the field" with other women. Too much the lady to make an issue of Mr. Rossmore's infidelities, Mrs. Rossmore nonetheless begins plotting her strategy to win him back. She does so by putting on a great show of pretending not to want her husband to return to the nest. Screenwriter C. Gardner Sullivan had a field day composing clever subtitles in which little was actually said, but much was inferred.
