Laura La Plante starred in this early sound comedy-drama about a girl who leaves her lawyer husband to study painting in Paris. Meanwhile the husband (Scott Kolk) is persuaded by femme fatale Mildred Van Dorn to file for divorce. But in Paris, Kolk discovers that he still loves Laura. After a few misunderstandings are ironed out, Van Dorn is discredited, and husband and wife embark on a second honeymoon. Universal's top comedian in the late 1920s, Laura La Plante made close to 20 talking pictures between 1929 and 1931. Something indefinable was lost in the transition, however, and today she is considered a victim of sound.
