Watch Cecil B. DeMille’s 20s silent film Why Change Your Wife?

Released in 1920, Why Change Your Wife? was one of half a dozen ‘marriage films’ directed by Cecil B. DeMille during the silent era and the fourth DeMille production to star Gloria Swanson.

A mere 21-years-old, her radiantly self-assured and versatile performance really makes this battle of the sexes comedy pop.

Watch this silent classic accompanied with a live jazz score by Niki King.
