 Case Study of a Production and Its Personnel: Her Reputation, 1922–1923

Show Summary Details

Preview

Ince's next few releases for First National were a series of contrasts that emphasized the steady progression of his career and films, culminating in his single most personally prescient production, Her Reputation. These movies demonstrated the public interest in stories dramatizing changing gender roles in society, and the regional interests at the heart of Ince's work. They also highlight Ince's leading director and writer, and many favorite performers. When Her Reputation and the novel of the film were released on September 3, 1923, the film was anticipated to do average business, with an exhibition value of $475,000. By the end of February 1924, after just over five months in release, it had grossed $201,048.49.
