The Battle of the Sexes (1928) is a film directed by D. W. Griffith, starring Jean Hersholt, Phyllis Haver, Belle Bennett, Don Alvarado and Sally O'Neil, and released by United Artists. The film was a remake by Griffit...展开h of an earlier film he directed in 1914, which starred Lillian Gish. Both films are based on the short story "The Single Standard" by Daniel Carson Goodman; the story was adapted for this production by Gerrit J. Lloyd.
The film was released as both a silent film, and in a sound version using the Movietone sound-on-film system. In 2004, the film was released on DVD by Image Entertainment. The theme song of the motion picture, "Just a Sweetheart", by Dave Dryer, Josef Pasternack and Nathaniel Shilkret (recorded versions of which are available, for example, on a commercially issued Paul Whiteman CD) was omitted from the DVD.
