Exit the Vamp is a lost[1] 1921 American silent comedy film directed by Frank Urson and written by Clara Beranger. The film stars Ethel Clayton, T. Roy Barnes, Fontaine La Rue, Theodore Roberts, William Boyd, and Michael D. Moore. The film was released on November 6, 1921, by Paramount Pictures.[2][3][4]


As described in a film magazine,[5] successful lawyer John Shipley (Barnes) becomes fascinated by a vampire (La Rue) of the accepted type. His wife Marion (Clayton) becomes aware of the infatuation and adopts the ways of her opponent, pretending incidentally an affection for a World War I veteran (Boyd) whom she knew in France. At a house party to which Marion had invited the other woman, her husband discovers his mistake in his judgment of womanly values and the wife emerges from the conflict victorious.
