Hampton, cast as cowboy Scott's wife, wants to take that well-trodden path to Reno and get a divorce. Scott then discovers that he is competing with easterner Marshall for his wife's hand. Marshall proves that he can do the cowboy routine as well as Scott, embarrassing him in a

bronco-riding exhibition, but Hampton ends up back in the arms of her husband. Hampton performs a bit of "La Boheme" as part of her opera performance and delivers a few other tunes: "I Gave My Heart Away," "Ridin' Home," and "Tonight Is The Night" (Jimmy McHugh, Harold Adamson). This was one of a

handful of pleasant little pictures in which Hampton appeared, thanks in large part to her husband, multi-millionaire Kodak executive Jules Brulator. Reportedly, he would get roles for his wife by offering studios film stock at low prices. "The Duchess of Park Avenue," as Hampton was known, didn't

disappoint her supportive husband (30 years her senior), nor did she let down her audiences with her distinctive voice.
