A very minor show business melodrama from Poverty producer William Steiner, Virtue's Revolt starred Edith Thornton, the wife of action hero Charles Hutchison. Thornton played Streisa Crane, a stagestruck girl refusing to, as they say, "make personal concessions" to a sleazy theatrical manager (Crauford Kent). She changes her mind, however, when her boyfriend (Eddie Phillips) fails to propose and becomes a great success on the stage. But stardom comes with a huge price tag and when the manager dies, she happily accepts her former boyfriend's long-awaited proposal of marriage. Virtue's Revolt was the final film to be directed by James Chapin, the son of screenwriter Frederic Chapin and brother-in-law of director William Wellman. The 25-year-old Chapin died from pneumonia October 5, 1924.
