'That's either your wife or your sister-in-law!" declares Gwen Lee to Aileen Pringle in the middle of Adam and Evil. This should be indication enough that this silent feature was a comedy, despite its title. Lew Cody, married to Aileen Pringle, pretends to be his own twin brother so that he can carry on with Ms. Lee. The laughs start rolling in when Cody's genuine lookalike brother shows up. Hedda Hopper and Roy D'Arcy play Cody's nonplussed friends in this door-slamming farce, cowritten by Florence Ryerson and F. Hugh Herbert.
