Scrambled Wives is a lost 1921 American silent comedy film produced by and starring Marguerite Clark. It was directed by Edward H. Griffith and released through Associated First National. This film had one color sequence, presumably a 1-strip Technicolor process being that Technicolor's Ray June is one of the cameramen. This film marks Clark's final screen performance. It is not known whether the film currently survives. This film is based on the play The First Mrs. Chiverick by Adelaide Matthews.

Plot

Based on a description in a film publication, Mary Smith (Clark) gives a party in her college room when John Chiverick (Bunker) is found in attendance. Because he has "compromised" her, John feels obligated to marry Mary. Immediately after the ceremony, Mary's father (Washburn) has the marriage annulled and sends Mary abroad. After two years she returns and sees her former husband at a Long Island house party. There is much concern about the disgrace that would be caused if her marriage annulment were to become public knowledge. Larry McCleod (Gendron) is at the party and is in love with Mary, although he believes that she is a widow. She accepts his proposal after confessing her situation.
