Lew Cody and Carmel Myers, previously co-starred in MGM's The Gay Deceiver, were reteamed by popular demand in The Demi-Bride. Actually, Cody and Myers appear in support of Norma Shearer, cast as Criquette, the stepdaughter of randy Parisienne Madame Girard (Myers). Trouble begins when Mme. Girard steps out on her husband (Lionel Belmore), Criquette's father, to fool around with rakish Phillippe Levaux (Cody). When Monsieur Girard finds out, Criquette saves her stepmother from scandal by tricking Levaux into a hasty marriage. Both Criquette and her stepmom are ultimately disillusioned by Levaux when he takes up with a third girl!
