Cheap Kisses is a 1924 silent drama film starring Jean Hersholt as a famous sculptor. This was the first film made by screenwriter C. Gardner Sullivan through his new production company, C. Gardner Sullivan Productions. Sullivan also wrote the screenplay. It was described as "a virile, fast-moving, jazzy story of the present day and age. It shows the peril to the youth of the land along the cocktail, petting-party route."[1]


The plot focuses on a famous sculptor, Gustaf Borgstrom (played by Jean Hersholt). He hires a chorus girl, Ardell Kendall (played by Lillian Rich). When Donald Dillingham (played by Cullen Landis) marries the chorus girl, his wealthy parents disown him.
