Synopsis by Hal Erickson
David Butler plays a soldier home from the war whose tendency to keep to himself foments gossip. According to his detractors, Butler is a drunk, gambler and wastrel. During a town carnival, Butler vanquishes his enemies once and for all, winning the love of Lillian Hall in the process. The independently produced Fickle Women boasts an excellent, cleverly shaded lead performance by David Butler, later to become a top Hollywood director. The film was based on Sitting on the World, a short story by Sophie Kerr.
