Sally, Irene, and Mary is a 1925 American silent comedy-drama film starring Constance Bennett, Sally O'Neil, and Joan Crawford. It is based on the 1922 play of the same name by Eddie Dowling and Cyrus Woods. The play was adapted again in 1938, again titled Sally, Irene and Mary and directed by William A. Seiter. This version stars Alice Faye, Joan Davis and Marjorie Weaver in the title roles, and co-starred Tony Martin, Fred Allen and Jimmy Durante.


The film takes a behind-the-scenes look at the romantic lives of three chorus girls and the way their preferences in men affect their lives.[1] Sally is brassy, self-assured chorine in search of a sugar daddy. Irene is a romantic girl easily seduced by con men. Whereas Mary is the true heroine of the story, leaving the sordidness behind to settle down [2]
