Storyline

Mary Fairchild elopes with Dick Mercer and it doesn't take long for Mary to realize she has made a mistake. Her wealthy husband, of short duration, locks her in their apartment to keep her from running away, but a group of gangsters, searching for money manage to enter. She escapes, changes her name and goes to work as a maid for George Blaine, who is also wealthy and single. But the gangsters, thinking she knows where the money is, are on her trail, and a couple of them appear in the mood to frisk her again. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Not as good as Juia Roberts of same title but worth watching
3 May 2006 | by (san jose , calif) – See all my reviews

Old films are always worth watching, if you want to be a student of films. It has a young Mary Astor, very beautiful indeed. Donald Crisp is the director. He was a much better actor. The performances are very wooden and stiff which is typical for early talkies. They were still learning how to say dialog. The emotions are overdone physically, because most of the actors came from the silent era where facial expressions and gestures had to replace dialog. Watch Mary Astor in one of her later silents and watch her early talkies. But watching these old films gives us a window into the past that we cannot get any other way.
