A novel by C. M. Matheson formed the basis of this creaky early British talkie. Jameson Thomas plays Roger Dalton, an insurance agent who becomes bored with his respectable fiancee. Falling in love with flamboyant opera star Mavis Cottrell (Vera Flory), Dalton turns his back on his girlfriend and devotes himself to advancing Mavis' career. Unfortunately, this requires money, leaving Dalton no choice (in his mind, anyway) but to embezzle funds from his own firm. The operatic highlights were the best part of this pedestrian romantic drama.
