~Bride's Play~
1922
~Thea Talbot & Marion Davies~
~Plot Synopsis~
According to tradition, the Earl of Kenmare, Sir John Mansfield (Frank Shannon), selects for his wife
Lady Enid of Cashel (Marion Davies), though she loves the Marquis of Muckross (John B O'Brien). At
the wedding ceremony she carries out the old custom of "The Bride's Play"--making a round of the
guests and asking each man in turn if he is the one she loves best--until, suddenly, the Marquis of
Muckross appears and carries her away. Sir Fergus (Wyndam Standing), the earl's descendant, is
about to marry Aileen Barrett (Marion Davies) and agrees that the old custom must be adhered to. At
the wedding, Aileen's former lover, Bulmer Meade (Carl Miller), a young Dublin poet who proved
unworthy and was rejected, appears as she asks the question, but instead of winning her Meade
receives a slap from Aileen, who rejoins her husband.
