The marriage between Larry and Vera Maitland (Carl Harbourd and Dorothy Bartlam) may be over before it begins when Larry falls for glamorous actress Gwenda Farrell (Madeleine Carroll). Rather than storm out of the house in high dudgeon, Vera opts for a more civilized approach. She visits Gwenda in her dressing room, whereupon the two ladies talk over their mutual attraction for Larry. Vera and Gwenda become close buddies, obliging the sheepish Larry to return to his wife. The "money scene" in Fascination shows the two heroines kissing and making up, which tended to make audiences in 1931 a tad uncomfortable.
