Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
A cuckolded husband discovers that he is in love with his ex-wife's cousin in this domestic melodrama from independent producer B. P. Schulberg. Although agreeing at first to give up custody of their child, the ex-wife changes her mind when she discovers the truth. But the child is almost killed in a freak accident and the haughty wife, who wants to go off with a new lover, finally agrees to the divorce settlement. Although burdened with a lachrymose script, Faint Perfume was rescued by good performances from the three leads: Seena Owen as the wife, William Powell as the husband, and Alyce Mills as the innocent cousin.
