Alice Brady was the biggest star on the World Studio lot, and small wonder: her father, theatrical impresario William H. Brady, owned the place. But Alice was talented enough to survive in showbiz without the added boost of nepotism, as she proves in 1917's The Divorce Game. As indicated by the flippant title, this is a comedy, revolving around the marital misadventures of airheaded Alice and her French nobleman husband John Bowers. When wifey spends every penny in the house and then some, Bowers is forced to make a few momentous decisions. Frances Marion, later MGM's top scenarist, adapted The Divorce Game from Leo Dietrichstein's Gallic farce Mlle. Fifi.
