Monte Blue, Edna Murphy, and Robert Ober star in this rather silly triangle melodrama, in which a supposed widow almost marries her husband's brother. Shot down over France, Blue survives but suffers from amnesia. Eight years later, his grieving widow (Edna) agrees to marry Ober, after taking one last look at the place in France where her "late" husband was last seen. Blue, meanwhile, has obtained employment at his father's aircraft plant when his memory suddenly returns. Claiming to be the son of the owner, he is immediately shipped off to the looney bin. Escaping, Blue takes himself to France where he is reunited with his wife. The assistant director of this film, Henry Blanke, later became one of Warner's most tasteful producers.
