Not a remake of the 1915 Margarita Fischer vehicle of the same name, Infatuation is based on Caesar's Wife, a story by Somerset Maugham. The dazzlingly beautiful Corinne Griffith plays British socialite Viola Morgan, who falls madly in love with professional soldier Sir Arthur Little (Percy Marmont) at a dinner party. The two marry, and before long Viola has relocated to Egypt with her husband. Soon bored by her hothouse existence, Viola succumbs to the attentions of young British attache Ronald Perry (Malcolm McGregor). But when her husband is wounded in an assassination attempt, Viola realizes that she still loves him after all.
