Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Other Men's Wives, a play by Walter Hackett, was the source for this early-talkie comedy-melodrama. The scene is a sinister French Inn, where a woman is murdered and a valuable necklace is stolen. Among the predatory types searching for the missing gems is philandering noblewoman Angela Worthington (Leila Hyams), who trades identities with a pretty maidservant (Billie Dove) to gain access to the dead woman's boudoir. Taking advantage of her new aristocratic status, the long-suffering maid gives Angela the scathing treatment she deserves -- but there are unforeseen consequences to this masquerade for both women. Almost as much a surprise as the casting of Leila Hyams as a villainess is the good-guy portrayal by veteran screen heavy Sidney Blackmer.
