A London actress collapses on stage and is sent by her doctor to stay in the country with a farmer and his wife. But when she starts an affair with the farmer, the idyllic life at "Crooning Water" is threatened with tragedy.
Elissa Landi stars in a dual role, as Binnie the chorus girl and Lia de Marita, the famous model she resembles. Binnie is mistaken for the model (who's involved in the theft of a string of pearls) and is asked to audition for a new show that needs a famous name). Egged on by pal Sally (Mabel Poulton) she sings "He's My Secret Passion" and gets the job. But things get more complicated when she borrows some fake pearls from Sally, totally unaware that the real Lia has fled the country with stolen ones.
Landi is charming and does well playing both women. Poulton is fun as spunky Sally. John Stuart plays the Gordon the suitor, John Longden is Lia's partner in crime, Wallace Lupino plays Johnson the fake American, Gus McNaughton plays Zinkwell, Kay Hammond as Joyce, Hannah Jones as the landlady, and Gus Sharland as the sergeant.
Landi had a substantial starring career in 1930s films in England and Hollywood. Poulton, a major silent film star in England, quickly fell to supporting roles in talkies.
