The Sporting Lover was produced by Faultless Pictures Corporation, leaving the picture wide open for wisecracks from the less-impressionable critics. The title character, played by Conway Tearle, is Captain Terrance Connaughton, known far and wide and as the most romantic man in the Army. Flitting from woman to woman, Connaughton finally decides to settle down when he falls in love with Lady Gwendolyn Cavens (Barbara Bedford). But alas! Lady G. will be forced to wed the evil Sir Philip Barton (Ward Crane) unless her horse "Good Luck" wins the Big Race. So just guess who straightens this mess out. That's right, it's Captain Terrance Connaughton, whose capacity for goodness is almost as big as his name.
