Having been misinformed that all French girls are morally suspect, American soldier David Kendall (Edwin August) is in for quite a shock when he's shipped Over There. After meeting several "nice" Frenchwomen, David returns to the states with a whole new perspective on things. It isn't long before he falls in love with Nenette (Carmel Myers), the daughter of French-born restaurateur Armande Bisson (Andrew Robson). But when Nenette is implicated in a murder, the disillusioned David instantly repudiates her -- and by extension, all Daughters of France. By film's end, however, David learns the folly of sweeping generalizations. If a print could be found of Broadway Scandal, chances are that supporting player Lon Chaney Sr., here cast as gangster "Kink" Colby, would emerge as the picture's best actor.
