The Other Woman’s Story
About the Film
“Robert Marshall is found dead. Colman Colby is arrested for the murder. At the trial it develops that Mrs. Colby was divorcing her husband to marry Marshall, of whom he had always been jealous. It also comes out that Jean Prentiss, named as correspondent in the Colby case, was deeply in love with Colby, although totally innocent. All witnesses seeing the dead man at his home the night of the murder testify that he ‘looked at the door behind him.’ The jury goes out and brings in a verdict of guilty. Meantime Jean remembers a girl’s face through the window at the Marshall funeral. Searching in the Rogues’ Gallery she locates the girl. This underworld denizen, Gertie Van, offers evidence that convicts Mrs. Colby of the crime committed in a jealous rage. Colby and Jean are united.” Exhibitor’s Trade Review, 31 Oct 1925, p. 34.
About the Restoration
The Other Woman’s Story was produced by B.P. Schulberg Productions. The six-reel feature was released in the United States on 15 November 1925. This restoration is based on two prints conserved at the Library of Congress Packard Campus for Audio-Visual Conservation: an incomplete tinted nitrate print in the AFI/Atkinson Collection and a six-reel black and white duplicate negative in the AFI/Donald Nichol Collection. The color tinting in this restoration is based on the colors present in the AFI/Atkinson nitrate print and corroborated by a Dutch export print conserved at EYE Filmmuseum, Netherlands. This restoration was completed in May 2018 through a partnership between the Library of Congress and the San Francisco Silent Film Festival.
