Before establishing himself as a top western star, Charles Starrett bided his time in such boiled-shirt dramas as Damaged Love. Determined to land Jim (Starrett) as her husband, footloose Nita (June Collyer) contrives to get herself pregnant by him. Jim wants to do the "right thing" -- trouble is, he's already married to Rose (Eloise Taylor). Eventually, the scheming Nita is left holding the bag, as it were, and Jim returns to his wife. Featured in the cast in a character role is Betty Garde, later one of the stars of the radio serial Front Page Farrell. Damaged Love was cheaply filmed in the New York converted-garage studio of talking-picture pioneer Lee De Forest.
