Popular leading lady Leatrice Joy was copacetically teamed with "fading star" Charles Ray in Nobody's Widow. After a whirlwind courtship, American gal Roxanna Smith (Joy) marries rakish English aristocrat John Clayton (Charles Ray). It isn't long before Roxanna becomes convinced that her new husband is unfaithful. Rather than face the humiliation of a failed marriage, our heroine pretends to be a widow when she returns home. But her "dead" husband soon shows up and wins her love all over again. Nobody's Widow was based on a play by Avery Hopwood.
