With her Hollywood career in the doldrums, actress Mae Marsh briefly set up shop in England, where she appeared in several intriguing productions. In Flames of Passion, Mae plays a married woman who falls in love with her chauffeur. When her lover accidentally kills her child, Mae refuses to betray the man to the police. Only under intensive cross-examination by lawyer C. Aubrey Smith does Marsh break down and tell the truth. Flames of Passion was one of many felicitous collaborations between producer Herbert Wilcox and director Graham Cutts.
