Adapted from the Broadway play by Louis Verneuil, this film, set in France, was fraught with difficulties. The leading lady was Eagels, an actress with a big following at the time; the original leading man was Anthony Bushell. But after shooting a version with him, Eagels was dissatisfied,

and demanded that another version be shot with March opposite her. Eagels was seriously ill while shooting the second version (she died later that year), and she barely managed to finish it. Even the addition of March fails to save this lackluster tale of jealousy. Young artist March is concerned

about his wife Eagels' relationship with Hobbes, an older man she had been involved with before her marriage. Hobbes, meanwhile, poses as her guardian. When Eagels is in financial straits, she borrows money from Hobbes and is discovered in his apartment, after she has lied to March about her

whereabouts. March kills Hobbes, and an innocent man is accused. In the end, however, March confesses.
