The bizarre Mae Murray, she of the bee-stung lips and haughty demeanor, plays sisters in this potboiler set during the Russian revolution. Fleeing to America, the non-identical sisters, both poor peasant types, lead totally opposite lives. The elder, Olga, masquerades as White Russian nobility and manages to land a rich husband, while Zita, the younger, finds herself desperately mired in poverty. When Olga is killed by a rejected suitor (Elmo Lincoln, Hollywood's first "Tarzan"), her kindhearted husband (Freeman Wood) adopts the pathetic but faithful Zita as his own. A typically overblown Murray escapade, Fashion Row was produced by Murray herself and directed by her husband, Robert Z. Leonard.
