This first of three talkies bearing the title Lover Come Back stars Constance Cummings as Connie, a super-efficient stenographer. Connie would willingly forsake her career if office manager Tom Evans (Jack Mulhall) would propose, but he barely knows she's alive. When Tom marries Vivian (Betty Bronson), the disenchanted Connie weds Tom's boss Yates (Jameson Thomas), a bore and a pest. Things straighten themselves out when Tom finally realizes that Vivian is the wrong girl for him (indeed, she's the wrong girl for anyone). Star Jack Mulhall is afforded the opportunity to sing a forgettable ballad called Cigarette, proving that he was an ideal silent film actor.
