Adele Buffington, a prolific screenwriter most closely associated with "B"-westerns, wrote the script for the backstage romance, Queen of the Chorus. Virginia Brown Faire plays the title character, a nightclub dancer in love with clean-limned Rex Lease (who had just finished essaying a similar role in Columbia's Broadway Daddies). When Lease is threatened with a lengthy prison term on a trumped-up charge, the heroine is forced to sacrifice her virtue to save her sweetheart from Durance Vile. The villain is played by Lloyd Whitlock, who does everything but twirl his mustache and sneer "me proud beauty." Queen of the Chorus was one of the few non-western efforts from low-budget Anchor Films.
