This typical Norma Talmadge weeper casts Norma as a social half-caste. She may have had a millionaire daddy, but her mom was just a chorus hoofer. Unaware of her "scandalous" past, Norma becomes engaged to wealthy Percy Marmont. But things take a sinister turn when her mother's nasty boyfriend threatens to tell all. Had the film been made 10 years later, the chorus girl would probably have been the heroine. Produced by Norma Talmadge's husband Joseph M. Schenck, Branded Woman was based on Branded, a play by Oliver D. Bailey.
