The Sporting Venus is a 1925 American silent romance film directed by Marshall Neilan.[1] The film was the second MGM release of Neilan, and starred his wife, actress Blanche Sweet,[2] who allegedly sported the lowest waistline of 1925. This is the first of two feature films that paired Ronald Colman with Blanche Sweet, the second being His Supreme Moment, which was released in May 1925.[3] This film is listed as being extant (surviving) at silentera database.[4]


Lady Gwendolyn (Blanche Sweet) is an heiress in love with a medical student, Donald (Ronald Colman), despite being bespoken to foreign prince Carlos (Lew Cody).



Life Magazine wrote "The Sporting Venus is typical of Neilan at his worst and at his best. It is foolish, inconsequential and spineless, and yet it is entertaining. ... If you look for rhyme or reason in The Sporting Venus, you will look in vain."[5]
