When a man asks another man more facile with words to do his wooing for him, there are always complications. The man with no talent for writing marries the girl, confesses one night he didn't write the letters and ends up with a knife in his back. The writer of the letters fell in love with the woman he wrote to and wants to become her second husband even if she did murder husband number one.

Given the job of writing screenplays from novels, Rand takes Chris Massie's book and thoroughly rewrites it into something more like =Cyrano De Bergerac= with a happy ending! (This is in keeping with Rand's tendency to either write what she thinks someone else should have written, or about what she thinks someone else should do or have done.) And -- it works! Although subject to the same sort of dismissal by establishment critics the rest of Rand's work, this is actually a very, very good film!
