Men and Women is a lost 1925 American silent drama film produced by Famous Players-Lasky and released by Paramount Pictures. It was directed by William C. deMille and starred Richard Dix, Claire Adams, and Neil Hamilton. It is based on a play, Men and Women, written years earlier by David Belasco and Henry Churchill de Mille, father of the director.[1][2][3]


Robert Stevens robs the bank where he is employed, and through the efforts of Calvin Stedman, the prosecuting attorney, he is sentenced to six years' imprisonment. While in jail his wife dies and his little daughter, Agnes, is placed in a convent. At the expiration of his sentence, Stevens locates his daughter and settles in Arizona, assuming the name of Stephen Rodman.




A 1914 Biograph film with the same name based on the same play still exists. It was directed by James Kirkwood and starred Lionel Barrymore, Blanche Sweet and her future husband Marshall Neilan.[4]
