Kissed is a 1922 American silent comedy film directed by King Baggot and starring Marie Prevost, Lloyd Whitlock, and Lillian Langdon.
As described in a film magazine, irrepressible young woman Constance Keener (Prevost) has her own ideas about choosing a husband. At a masquerade ball she is kissed by a stranger and thinks she has found her ideal. However, she is unable to determine which of three men, dressed alike, delivered the kiss. She finally decides it was Dr. Moss (Whitlock) and agrees to elope with him. While leaving on a train she discovers, when he kisses her, that Dr. Moss is not the man from the ball. When the train is held up by a bandit and she is kissed by the "highwayman," she then finds her ideal, the young millionaire Merson Torrey (Glendon) who originally sought her hand.
