Broken Barriers is a 1924 American silent film starring James Kirkwood, Norma Shearer, and Adolphe Menjou. It was directed by Reginald Barker. The film was based upon the novel of the same name by Meredith Nicholson.[1] The film's status is currently unknown.[2]


Grace Durland (Shearer) is a young debutante who is forced to leave college when her father goes bankrupt. While working for a living, she falls in love with Ward Trenton (Kirkwood) who is married. As she reveals her love for a married man to her family, the reaction is very negative. Ward's evil wife refuses to grant him a divorce. This changes when he is injured in a car accident.
