For a "Poverty Row" production, Ladies in Love is pretty and is in fact no worse than most of the early talkies being ground out by the major studios. Alice Day stars as radio singer Brenda Lascelle, who throws a fancy party for her many male admirers. Small-town songwriter Harry King (Johnny Walker), hoping to make a sale, crashes the party, and when Brenda lays her eyes on him it's you-know-what at first sight. Messing up this pretty arrangement is the arrival of Harry's hometown sweetheart Mary Wood (Elinor Flynn), who expresses dismay at her boyfriend's infidelity -- even though she's been merrily playing the field herself. It's a typical Chesterfield production, shot almost entirely indoors and with an overabundance of dialogue.
