Irene Rich is married to Albert Roscoe and gives up her burgeoning stage career. When Roscoe is fired and hospitalized, Miss Rich resumes her career, but Roscoe is not happy with his wife as the breadwinner in this decent tear-jerker that grows increasingly melodramatic as it goes along.
Miss Rich was in a lot of soap operas during the silent era, appeared as Will Rogers' wife in a couple of his early sound films. She is quite lovely in this mediocre effort from Columbia, due to an uninspired script and despite some first-class acting support from the likes of Joseph Swickard and Pauline Garon. It undoubtedly pleased the small-town audiences that the studio, Columbia, catered to initially, while studio boss was fighting to get out of the Poverty Row producer category. Eventually he would succeed, in no small part to competent movies like this one.
