Jewel thief Sophie Lang was successful enough in her screen debut in THE NOTORIOUS SOPHIE LANG (1934) that Paramount brought her back two years later. Michael still has the title role, but now her character is attempting to go straight as the companion to wealthy English matron Patterson,

who has a fondness for expensive jewelry. Much of the story takes place on board a US-bound ship whose passengers include not only Michael and her employer, but also master thief Standing and newsman Milland. A romance begins between Milland and Michael, while Standing tries to enlist the

ex-criminal's aid in stealing Patterson's prize possession, the Krueger diamond. Michael refuses, but Standing gets the gem anyway, leaving Michael as the number-one suspect. It all gets sorted out in the end, well enough for Michael to reprise her character once more in SOPHIE LANG GOES WEST

(1937). An appealing cast and some good technical work make up for the rather bland plotting.
