The Wife of the Centaur

The Wife of the Centaur

The Wife of the Centaur is a 1924 American silent drama film directed by King Vidor, and released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer shortly after it formed from a merger of Metro Pictures, Goldwyn Pictures, and Mayer Pictures in April 1924.


A novelist, Jeffery Dwyer (Gilbert), imagines that he has been reincarnated as a creature from Greek mythology. He is romantically torn between the emotionally mature Joan (Boardman) and a less stable “jazz girl” Inez (Pringle). Jeffery marries Inez, but a love triangle forms when he returns repeatedly to Joan.
