Broken Barriers is a 1924 American silent drama film starring James Kirkwood, Norma Shearer, and Adolphe Menjou. Directed by Reginald Barker, the film is based upon the novel of the same name by Meredith Nicholson.[1][2]


Grace Durland (Shearer) is a young debutante who is forced to leave college when her father goes bankrupt. While working for a living, she falls in love with Ward Trenton (Kirkwood) who is married. As she reveals her love for a married man to her family, the reaction is very negative. Ward's evil wife refuses to grant him a divorce. This changes when he is injured in a car accident.



With no copies of Broken Barriers located in any film archives,[3] it is a lost film.
