Bebe Daniels struck a blow for feminism--for at least 6 reels, that is--in The Fifty-Fifty Girl. It all begins when Kathleen O'Hara (Daniels) and Jim Donahue (James Hall) find themselves joint owners of a gold mine. Each party would like to get rid of the other and take full ownership. Thus, they strike a deal that might serve as an amusing I Love Lucy plot: O'Hara will dig for gold, while Donahue will stay home and do the housework. The first one to pull out of this agreement will forfeit his or her share. This being a 1920s film, it's O'Hara who weakens first when she's attacked by the villains, but by this time Donahue has fallen in love with her for real, so it's "share and share alike" at fadeout time.
