Who better to play Ace of Cads than that charming reprobate Adolphe Menjou? This time, however, Menjou is reasonably honorable. A high-ranking military officer, he is discredited in the eyes of his fiancee by his military enemies. Driven from town in disgrace, Menjou returns years later to do the "Monte Cristo" bit. Ace of Cads was produced by William LeBaron and directed by Luther Reed, the creative team who'd later put the fledgling RKO Radio studios on its feet.
