Restless Wives is a lost[1] 1924 silent melodrama, directed by Gregory La Cava.[2] A vintage movie trailer displaying short clips of the film still exists.


Polly, is a wealthy wife neglected by her husband James Benson. When a business engagement causes James to miss their wedding anniversary, Polly goes with admirer Curtis Wilbur to a cabaret, and later she decides to go live with her father. James, who is desperate for reconciliation, kidnaps Polly while she's with Wilbur and takes her to his lodge in the mountains. James is shot by a drunken servant and when he falls, he knocks over a lamp and sets the place on fire. Polly drags him out of the lodge to safety, and the couple is reunited.[3][4]
