The Amazons is neither a story of ancient Greece nor a South American travelogue. Instead, it is based on a play by Arthur Wing Pinero, gently spoofing the "independent woman" then emerging on the social scene. All the ladies in the cast bear masculine names: Tommy, Willie, Noel etc. Marguerite Clark plays Tommy, who decides at the end that she'd sooner be a female in love than a lonely "man-woman".
