Quality Street is a 1927 American silent romance film directed by Sidney Franklin and starring Marion Davies, Conrad Nagel and Helen Jerome Eddy. Produced by Cosmopolitan Productions for release through MGM, it was based on the 1901 play of the same name by James M. Barrie. Prints of this film are preserved at the Library of Congress and in the Turner Archive.[2][3][4]

In 2002, the film was released on DVD by the Milestone Films and Video company releasing through Image Entertainment.[5]

There was also a sound film version made in 1937, starring Katharine Hepburn.



In her 26th film, Marion Davies starred in this romantic drama as a young woman about to be married when the man (Conrad Nagel) suddenly goes off to war. Set during the Napoleonic Wars, Davies made her last silent "costume picture." She plays both Phoebe and (years later) the invented niece Livvy. This was only the second film in which Davies played an "old and faded" woman. The other was in The Young Diana. Davies won rave reviews, but the film was not a success. It earned the lowest gross receipts of all her MGM silent films.
