Oh, You Women! is a 1919 American silent comedy film written and directed by John Emerson and Anita Loos. The film stars Ernest Truex, Joseph Burke, Bernard Randall, Gaston Glass, Louise Huff, and Betty Wales. The film was released on May 4, 1919, by Paramount Pictures.[1][2] It is not known whether the film currently survives.[3]


As described in a film magazine,[4] boy orator Abraham Lincoln Jones (Truex) works in the mayor's office and emulates his namesake, believing that he had a sure accession to the boss's chair. But the war took him away, mussed him up, and shot him back home on sick leave. He finds the home town is not the same. A couple of "Women's Rights" specialists had vested and panted the female populous, while males were minding the babies and doing housework. One young woman retained frills and furbelows, the dreaded dressmaker's daughter. Abe takes hold of the town and young woman and proves himself a man.
