The Woman Michael Married is a lost 1919 American silent society drama film directed by Henry Kolker and produced by and starring Bessie Barriscale. Distribution of the film was through newly formed Robertson-Cole, soon to form into the FBO company.
As described in a film magazine, after professional diver Mira Sacky (Barriscale) rescues a child from the incoming tide, Michael Ordsway (Holt), a son of wealth, offers her any reward she might mention. She demands that he marry her. Being a good sport, he does so. Then she offers to leave him for $10,000 and the protection of his name for two years, but he refuses. To quiet talk about them, she lives with him for a while but as a wife in name only. She entertains his guests until one of them insults her, and she leaves. Michael's father (Guise), while strolling on the beach one day, meets Mira and, upon learning her identity, attempts to bring about a reconciliation. Michael refuses and goes abroad. Visiting his sister in Rome two years later he finds Mira a prima donna. Realizing that they love each other, they put aside their differences.
