Produced in Arizona by theater legend Oliver Morosco's wife Helen Mitchell, Her Secret told the sordid story of Waffles (Sari Maritza, a waitress accused by Tucson bluenoses of "contributing to the delinquency of minors." One "minor" in particular is Johnny Norton (Buster Collier), the exiled son of a Chicago industrialist (Alan Mowbray), in Tucson after having served a jail term for drunk driving. Johnny falls for Waffles, the pretty waitress, but is disturbed when the girl visits a remote cabin with a male friend, Tex (Rex Armond). Unbeknownst to all and sundry, Waffles is actually visiting her dying mother, but rumors fly and the students from a local college are soon prohibited from frequenting her café. Her Secret was banned in many locations but after a few incendiary scenes had been deleted, the film enjoyed a wide release in 1936 under a new title, The Girl from Georgia. According to some reports, the production was financed by a local Tucson businessmen, one of whom was the father of supporting player Tex Armond. Despite her exotic name, leading lady Sari Miritza actually hailed from Great Britain.
