Also known as The Loves of Sunya, this Gloria Swanson picture is a remake of the 1919 Clara Kimball Young vehicle The Eyes of Youth (itself based on a play by Charles Guernon and Max Marcin). Unable to choose among her many suitors, heroine Swanson consults a crystal ball. Here she is given a preview of what life might be like as the wife of (a) John Boles, (b) Andres de Segoula, (c) Anders Randolph, (d) Raymond Hackett, (e) Ivan Lebedeff or (f) Ian Keith. Shown that tragedy lies in store with her if she marries for fame or wealth, Swanson finally settles for true love. The first production from Gloria Swanson's own production company, The Love of Sunya was also the inaugural offering at New York's new Roxy Theater.
