A typical low-budget social drama from Sam Sax's Gotham Productions, Unmarried Wives starred Charles Chaplin's first wife, Mildred Harris, as Maggie, a chorus girl who, through the efforts of her press agent, becomes a famous revue artist. She is pursued by wolfish Tom Gregory (Lloyd Whitlock), whose wife (Gladys Brockwell), to get back at him, stages a kidnapping. Maggie survives the scandal only to face a lecherous stage manager. She is saved in the nick of time by her boyfriend Joe (George Cooper) and vows to retire from show business and become his wife. A rather plumb ingenue, Mildred Harris traded on her past relationship with Chaplin in the 1920s but played mainly bit parts thereafter.
