The Girl from Havana is a kaleidoscopic early-talkie brew of comedy, melodrama, romance, and high-steppin' musical numbers. Lola Lane, a detective for a jeweler's protective association, disguises herself as a chorus girl and books passage on a Havana-bound liner. Her quarry is young Paul Page, who has joined a gang of jewel thieves after being implicated in a spectacular heist (wherein a phony mad dog was used as subterfuge). Like Lane, Page is not all he seems--he has allowed himself to be disgraced so that he can infiltrate the gang responsible for the murder of his jeweler father. Joining forces, Lane and Page collar the criminals.
