The smoldering Evelyn Brent starred in this silent melodrama about a chorus girl who turns down a proposal of marriage from a wealthy young scion (Theodore Von Eltz, only to change her mind in order to annoy his uppity relatives. But when Von Eltz's dimwitted sister (Joyce Compton) is found in the company of a very much murdered playboy, Evelyn nobly assumes the blame in a misguided attempt to shield the girl. In the end, both Evelyn and Joyce are saved by chorine Marjorie Bonner, who confesses to having killed the man out of jealousy. Amazingly, Broadway Lady was directed by Wesley Ruggles, a Hollywood professional with some taste who should have known better.
