Emmett J. Flynn had directed everyone from William S. Hart to Laurel and Hardy by the time he wielded the megaphone for his first talkie, The Veiled Woman. The title character is Nanon (Lia Tora) who, in flashback, cautions a virginal young woman (Lupita Tovar) from trodding the primrose path in life. While working as a roulette girl in the gambling house owned by her lover Pierre (Paul Vincenti), Nanon accidentally kills a man and takes a run-out powder. Later on, Nanon marries a respectable socialite, only to lose her husband when he learns about her unsavory past. Her tale told, Nanon is unexpectedly reunited with Pierre, now making an honest living as a cab driver.The Veiled Woman was also filmed in French- and Spanish-language versions.
