All-purpose Columbia Pictures leading lady Dorothy Revier was teamed with newcomer Tom Owen in The Siren. When her car breaks down during a rainstorm, wealthy confidence trickster Revier seeks refuge by sneaking into a nearby log cabin. Removing her wet clothes, the lady crawls into a bed and falls asleep. This is the sight that greets the cabin's owner, handsome duck-hunter Owen, when he returns. Ever the gentleman, Owen waits until the girl is properly dressed before introducing himself, whereupon the two take an extra-special interest in one another. Later on, Owen is invited to a weekend party at Revier's mansion. Also on hand is the girl's partner in crime, cardsharp Norman Trevor. Refusing to allow Owen to be cheated at cards, Revier orders Trevor out of the house, but the cad returns and a fight ensues, during which the curtains catch fire and the mansion is consumed in flames. Assumed to have been killed in the blaze, Trevor vengefully stays out of sight long enough for Revier to be accused of his murder. But at the last minute, Owen forces Trevor to come forward and save Revier from execution.
