Former ingenue Alice Brady took her first step towards the dizzy society matrons she'd play in the talkie era in the 1920 silent The New York Idea. The film concerns the rock-solid marriage of upper-crust couple Alice and Lowell Sherman. Despite the most alluring of temptations, the couple insists upon keeping their union intact. Contrasting this fidelity are the extramarital hijinks of such socialites as Hedda Hopper (the same) and George Howell. The New York Idea was based on the play by Langdon Mitchell.
