Sensation Seekers
Billie Dove stars as "Egypt" Hagen, a libertine flapper who unexpectedly falls in love with the staid Reverend Lodge (Raymond Bloomer). He proposes marriage, but she sadly turns him down, worrying that her checkered past will ruin his own reputation. On the rebound, she marries millionaire Ray Sturgis (Huntley Gordon), whom she does not truly love despite his innate decency. When Sturgis is killed in a shipwreck (the film's highlight), Egypt despairs, feeling the whole tragedy is her fault. She finds spiritual solace in the arms of Rev. Lodge, finally agreeing to marry him no matter what the consequences. Sensation Seekers was the penultimate silent-film effort by Lois Weber, one of the few women directors in Hollywood. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
