Experience is a 1921 American silent morality drama film produced by Famous Players-Lasky and distributed by Paramount Pictures. The allegorical film was directed by George Fitzmaurice and starred Richard Barthelmess. It was based on George V. Hobart's successful 1914 Broadway play of the same name.[1] It was the film debut of Lilyan Tashman.

Experience is presumed to be a lost film.[2]


The plot of Experience was summarized in the August 1921 issue of Photoplay magazine.



Some of the minor roles were filled through contests held in various cities, which gave advance publicity for the film. For example, Edna Wheaton was selected for the role of "Beauty" through a contest run by the New York Daily News.[4]
