Title supplied by cataloger.; Photograph was edited for publication purposes. Photograph caption dated August 12, 1927 reads "Miss Gish created a sensation in the first court fight with Duell by munching raw carrots on the witness stand, as pictured above, for a 'nerve tonic.' The court ruled the contract of controversy was 'breached by both parties.'" Charles H. Duell, Jr. was a film producer and at one time he and Gish were romantically involved. After completing a film with him, Miss Gish was sued for breach of contract. The suit was eventually thrown out, with Gish receiving compensation for court costs.
