After suffering magnificently in picture after picture at RKO and Paramount, Helen Twelvetrees was subjected to even more agony in Columbia's My Woman. Twelvetrees is cast as Connie, the ever-lovin' wife of vaudeville hoofer Chick (Wallace Ford). After years of tanktowns and two-a-days, Chick finally hits it big as a radio star (adding what was then a "modern" twist to an old story). Success goes to his head almost immediately, whereupon he forgets all about Connie. Inevitably, Chick sabotages his own career, hits the skids, and begs forgiveness from his spouse. Present-day viewers might find it surprising that Connie would prefer the chronically unreliable Chick over her most ardent suitor, the cultured, soft-spoken radio executive Mr. Bradley (Victor Jory in a rare sympathetic role).
