Vintage original 8 x 10 in. US single-weight glossy photograph from the lost silent film drama, UNGUARDED WOMEN, released in 1924 by Paramount Pictures and directed by Alan Crosland.


The image features a shot of Douglas Albright (Richard Dix) dining with his beautiful fiancée, Helen Castle (Mary Astor), as a waiter comes to their table. It is in very good+ condition.
Unguarded Women is a lost silent film, as no prints are known to exist.


*"This film was based on Lucy Stone Terrill’s 1924 short story, “Face.” A review of the picture in the 24 June 1924 New York Times claimed that Terrill’s story was inspired by “Confucius’s ‘Respect is a man’s face.’”


Douglas Albright, a hero just returned from the war, is conscience-striken over allowing his buddy to die. Taking charge of his future father-in-law's business, he goes to China to gain self-control. There he meets his friend's widow and offers to give up Helen, his fiancée, for her; however, the widow's suicide frees him from this obligation, and he finds happiness with Helen."
