Louis Joseph Vance, creator of the fictional detective hero The Lone Wolf, wrote the story upon which Beau Revel was based. The film was no whodunnit, but instead a romantic triangle, given additional dramatic impact by pitting a father against a son. Lewis Stone plays Lawrence "Beau" Revel, an elegant gentleman of middle age who falls in love with gorgeous dancer Florence Vidor. Her affections are torn between Revel and his own son, played by Lloyd Hughes.
