American heiress Ruth Chatterton (as Fay Houston) marries likewise wealthy Englishman Paul Cavanaugh (as Ronald "Ronnie" Kilkerry). The marriage seems like a match made in societal Heaven, but not after Ms. Chatterton discovers Mr. Cavanaugh isn't willing to give up his long-term mistress, Juliette Compton (as Gemma). Since her husband's lover is also the wife of her beloved brother, Chatterton is forced to keep mum about the affair. She's afraid already unstable brother Donald Cook (as Terrence "Terry" Houston) might go off the deep end. So, Chatterton becomes a gossiped-about party girl. In Paris, she meets lonely Paul Lukas (as Carl Heiden), a struggling artist. Will Chatterton become "Unfaithful" too?

Later, a tragedy brings many truths into the open…

"Unfaithful" is witty in spots - we learn, for example, that Chatterton's husband is the second most popular man in England, after Maurice Chevalier - but, the film is not much more than an opportunity for its star to model the latest fashions, while acting out its targeted audience's fantasy. There are times when you can almost - but not quite - hear directions for her to turn and pose for the camera. With the exception of her matronly wedding dress, Chatterton looks fine.

**** Unfaithful (3/14/31) John Cromwell ~ Ruth Chatterton, Paul Lukas, Paul Cavanaugh, Donald Cook
