The British melodrama Half a Truth was based on Rita, a novel by Leslie Howard Gordon. Margaret Hope stars as Virginia, the daughter of millionaire Sir Richard Mallison (Percy Standing). Virginia is victimized by scheming Lady Lucille Altamont (Norma Whalley), whose lofty station in life obscures her larcenous nature. Lady Lucille blackmails Virginia into marrying the equally dishonest Marquis Sallast (Miles Mander), even though the girl's heart really belongs to Chris Kennaway (Lawford Davidson). Will the villainess be (curses) foiled again in time?
