Enchantment (1921) Poster


Tom Lewis: Mr. Hoyt


  • Mrs. Hoyt : I tell you, Will, things have come to a pretty pass when girls of eighteen want to educate their mothers.

    Mr. Hoyt : Well, just what *is* the matter with her?

    Mrs. Hoyt : She has an acute attack of youth, and thinks she'a a beauty.

    Mr. Hoyt : Why shouldn't she? The very image of her father!

    Mrs. Hoyt : She imagines herself a modern Queen of Sheba, with every man subject to her enchantment.

  • Mr. Hoyt : How long since Ethel has been spanked?

  • Ethel Hoyt : Father, please don't be a grouch at the theatre tonight. I've invited some very distinguished college men to join us. They're quite willing to like you, so I do want you to make a nice impression on them.

    Mr. Hoyt : Nice impression! On those dancing lizards!

  • Mr. Hoyt : It's - -it's about my daughter Ethel. Just because a few sapped college boys gum up her afternoons, she imagines every man she meets is crazy about her. She thinks she's a lion-tamer, but, boy, you've got her beat!

  • Mr. Hoyt : The men she's been running around with are just half portions. You'd be competing with nothing but a field of half-wits.

  • Mr. Hoyt : See here, young lady, I've just learned that you've taken up with an actor.

    Ethel Hoyt : But he's a friend of yours, old dear.

    Mr. Hoyt : Friend or enemy, I don't want my daughter running around with an actor with a past! I could tell you stories about him that would put a permanent wave on the brightest head shining on earth. Anyway, I don't want you running around with him - and that's final!

    Ethel Hoyt : All right, papa... But what a life we modern women are forced to lead, with blue laws, prohibition and old fashioned parents.
