In her second film, former San Francisco dancer Dorothy Revier stars as a cabaret dancer whose nasty husband (Harry Van Meter) forces her into the arms of wealthy Jack Connolly in order to blackmail the man's influential father. When the latter (Lee Willard), a judge, is found murdered during a masked ball, Dorothy is blamed. Connolly, however, discovers the truth with the aid of the murdered man's nurse (Juanita Hansen), with whom he has fallen in love. Directed by Harry Revier, Dorothy's then-husband, The Broadway Madonna was filmed on locations in San Francisco by a small company headed by newcomers Sam and Harry Cohn. The Cohn brothers went on to found Columbia Pictures, whose first star would be none other than Dorothy Revier.
