For Alimony Only is a 1926 American silent drama film directed by William C. deMille and starring Leatrice Joy, Clive Brook, and Lilyan Tashman.[1]

The film's sets were by the art director Max Parker while the costumes were designed by Adrian, later known for his work at MGM.



Leatrice Joy had impulsively cut her hair short in 1926, and Cecil B. DeMille, whom Joy had followed when he set up Producers Distributing Corporation, was publicly angry as it prevented her from portraying traditional feminine roles.[2] The studio developed projects with roles suitable for her “Leatrice Joy bob”,[2] and For Alimony Only was the fourth of five films before she regrew her hair. Despite this, a professional dispute would end the Joy / Demille partnership in 1928.


A copy of For Alimony Only is preserved film at the UCLA Film and Television Archive.[3]
