This is the sort of movie Hollywood made in the 1920s and 30s that played to a fascination with how "the other half" lived. It tells the story of a young woman who is left penniless at the death of her mother, and thrown out on the streets of Paris. She gets a job working in a dance hall, where the manager intends to sell her to a wealthy South American.
That young woman is the daughter of a convict, Victor McLaglin, who just escaped from Devil's Island and returns to Paris to see her.
It's all pretty much 1930s melodrama. A few scenes could have been touching if they had been better developed.
I can't say that this movie really has anything to recommend it. McLaglin gave much better performances later, in such movies as Wee Willie Winkee and Gunga Din.
