My Past is based on a novel called Ex-Mistress, a title that was rejected outright by the Hollywood censors. Even so, what transpires on screen is pretty racy for its time, with stage star Dora Macy (Bebe Daniels) enjoying the favors of wealthy bachelor John Thornley (Lewis Stone). When Dora falls for Thornley's young business associate Robert Byrne (Ben Lyon), the older man graciously steps aside. Our heroine soon regrets having come between Byrne and his wife Consuelo (Natalie Morehead), and takes an ocean voyage to put her checkered past behind her. But Thornley, feeling that Byrne is best rid of his termagant spouse, pulls a few strings to bring Dora and Bryne back together. Incidentally, stars Bebe Daniels and Ben Lyon would soon be married in real life, without the help of Lewis Stone.
