This Poverty Row potboiler stars Sally O'Neil as Diana Wyman, a madcap heiress who manages to run through most of her family's fortune in record time. Cut off from her inheritance, Diana petulantly leaves for parts unknown. The executor of the Wyman estate, who happens to harbor a crush on Diana, dispatches his young assistant George Duncan (Paul Page) to track the girl down. Duncan catches up with our heroine in New Orleans at Mardi Gras time, and in a twinkling they've fallen in love with each other. Reviewers were so bored by The Moth that they reserved their best notices for bit player Fred Kelsey, typecast as usual as a bombastic detective.
