Irish tenor McCormack, whose film debut won him rave reviews and audiences, plays a singer in love with Joyce, but she is forced to marry someone else. Completely devastated, he abandons his singing career. Her husband eventually deserts her and her two children, and McCormack helps
support the family because Joyce is the only woman he has ever loved. This early talkie was filmed in 70mm and recorded using Movietone, a sound-on-film process developed in the late 1920s for the Fox film company. Use of the process enhanced McCormack's performance of 11 songs, including: "Little
Boy Blue" (Ethelbert Nevin), "Paddy Me Lad" (Albert Hay Malotte), "I Hear You Calling Me" (Harold Herford, Charles Marshall), "A Fair Story by the Fireside," "Just for a Day," "Kitty My Love," "The Rose of Tralee" (Charles Glover, C. Mordaunt Spencer), "A Pair of Blue Eyes," "I Feel You Near Me,"
"Song O' My Heart" (Glover, William Kernell, James Hanley), "Then You'll Remember Me" (Alfred Burns, William Michael Balfe). Other songs were "Loughi Sereni E Cari" and "Ireland, Mother Ireland."
