Harrison is excellent as a British cad who ultimately has an inglorious death in battle. After being tossed out of Oxford, he becomes involved with Kent, the wife of his best friend, Jones. When this ends he marries Palmer, a rich Austrian, to get at her money. Palmer tries to kill

herself when she learns her husband is having an affair with Johnston, his father's secretary. In the end, it is Harrison who ends up unheroically killed in WW II. The film is filled with wti and style. It does not treat its unattractive subject with sympathy, yet remains sensitive and touching.

However, Harrison's roguish affairs proved to be a bit much for Hollywood censors, who gave some problems to the film's distribution on its initial run.
