This is tagged as being Forrest Stanley and Marion Davies in Beauty's Worth (1922), but I don't think it is. It looks more like Matt Moore to me and the era looks more like late teens than the 1920s. I can't make it look like Stanley and I don't recognize the scene. Any ideas?

Weird. I can't place that hair in any Davies film.... You may be right!

I agree that it's not Marion. The pouty cheeks give it away.

If that's Kathleen Clifford sitting down right with the gentleman, then the film could be "No More Women" (1924) with Matt Moore and Madge Bellamy. Bellamy's hair seems a lot more blonde in this picture, however, than usual, although by the time the talkies came about, her hair was much more blonde.

It's not Madge Bellamy. Blonde or brunette, her dark, doe eyes stand out in any photo, and this person has small plain eyes.

I also processed the Ince nitrate negatives at the Herrick Library, and from those and the Ince stills, she had dark brown hair in every Ince film through 1923.
