Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Having found out that her husband Earle Williams has bought her a diamond-encrusted comb for her birthday, wife Betty Compson is taken aback when Williams presents her with a diamond necklace instead. Hubby truthfully explains that he sold the comb to a friend, but wifey doesn't believe him -- especially when she sees the comb adorning the hair of another woman (Jocelyn Lee). In high dudgeon, Compson walks out on her husband, and it takes the next five reels to straighten everything out. Say it with Diamonds was the final film effort of former matinee idol Earle Williams, who died in 1927. Leading lady Betty Compson remained in films until the late 1940s, playing opposite everyone from Erich Von Stroheim to The Bowery Boys.
