Polly of the Follies is a 1922 American silent romantic comedy film starring Constance Talmadge, Horace Knight, and Thomas Carr. It is presumed to be lost;[1] all that is known to have survived is a trailer.[2][3] An intertitle from the trailer states that Talmadge plays "a stagestruck country girl who hits New York and strikes Ziegfeld for a job".[2] According to the Internet Movie Database, this was James Gleason's film debut. A trailer for the film was preserved by the Academy Film Archive in 2009.[4]

The film is a romantic comedy, focusing on the love triangle between Bob Jones, Alysia Potter and Polly Meachum. Originally engaged, Bob and Alysia elope to Bowling Green, Connecticut, where they meet Silas Meachum, a campaigner against motion pictures, and his daughter, Polly. The eloping couple’s family arrive, chasing them, and persuade them to wait to get married. Polly goes to New York to join the Ziegfeld Follies, but is ultimately replaced by Alysia. As Bob consoles Polly, Alysia breaks off the engagement, and Bob and Polly may now marry.
