Made the year after Davis scored her first major starring success in her triumphal role in OF HUMAN BONDAGE (1934), this film was something of a letdown. Hunter, a society attorney of questionable character, has been dumped by his fiancee, Alexander, who marries another man, Clive. By

way of recompense for the desertion, Hunter gets blind drunk. Davis, who is not of his social caste, rescues Hunter from serious embarrassment and joins him in his unhappy carousal. Upon awakening, they discover they have gotten married. Davis suggests an annulment, but Hunter convinces her to

wait and see whether things will work out. With her assistance and support, he renews his career, which begins to flourish. Meanwhile, Alexander realizes that her marriage to Clive was a mistake; she wants to get back together with Hunter. Good-hearted Davis agrees to step aside for the society

scions and get a divorce, but then she meets Alexander and realizes that the lady is truly no lady at all. She tells her as much in the middle of a flossy restaurant, disquieting Hunter, who moves out on her. Couched in his club, he meets fellow member Clive, who convinces him that his coarsely

bred cutie should continue as his consort.
