Always the Woman is a 1922 American silent romance drama film produced by and starring Betty Compson and directed by Arthur Rosson.[1][2]

The film is incomplete and preserved at the UCLA Film and Television Archive.[3]


Celia Thaxter (Compson) is an American vaudeville actress who is on a journey to Egypt, becoming engaged to Reginald Stanhope (Gerald Pring) during the voyage. Once they reach the Sahara desert, the couple becomes part of a treasure hunt led by another passenger native to the region, Kelim Pasha (Macey Harlam). During the trek, Pasha starts coming on to Celia, while Stanhope does nothing to help her, as it's revealed that he was merely a tool of Pasha. Celia is eventually saved by another woman in the party, who kills Pasha, and Celia finds true romance at last with an American whose life she had saved during her voyage.
