The Woman and the Puppet is a 1920 American silent film starring Geraldine Farrar and Lou Tellegen, directed by Reginald Barker, and produced by Samuel Goldwyn.

Plot

Based upon a review in a film publication, Don Mateo (Tellegen) attempts to bribe the mother (Dione) of Concha Perez (Farrar) so that he can use her as his toy, but Concha leaves and becomes a cigarette girl who dances at a wharf cafe. When Don Mateo discovers her there dancing for some Englishmen, he no longer believes that she is the virtuous maiden who spurned his advances.

Concha convinces him that his suspicions are wrong and unwarranted. The Don is a conceited person used to adulation of senoritas, and when Concha leads him on a chase and vamps him, he becomes enraptured. The lovers then have a series of quarrels, jealousies, and other mishaps until they reach a final understanding.
