Writer/director Marshall Neilan once more makes lemonade from a lemon in The Eternal Three. Hobart Bosworth plays Frank R. Walters, an elderly doctor who takes for himself a young bride, portrayed by Claire Windsor. Feeling neglected, the new wife starts up an affair with Walter's adopted son Bob (George Cooper), who has a terrible reputation with the ladies. In ways both large and small, both lovers pay for their sins, and the doctor is made to realize how his neglect of his wife caused the whole imbroglio. Raymond Griffith deftly steals the film with his perfectly timed and paced comedy relief.
