Storyline

Wealthy arts impresario Nicholas Harmon tires of his aging operatic star Nina, who is also his lover. Harmon's son Don dislikes the way Nina disparages his late mother, and rejects his father and his money when the senior Harmon refuses to rebuke her. Don leaves his father's house and takes a job as a nightclub musical conductor. He meets a Russian refugee girl, Anna, who has a beautiful singing voice, and falls in love with her,. When Nicholas Harmon happens to visit the nightclub and hears and sees Anna, he decides she will be his next star -- and his next lover. Father and son are thus pitted each against the other for Anna's favors. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Trivia

Bela Lugosi kisses an actress in a very brief romantic scene. In an interview, he had mentioned interest in doing romantic roles, as he had done so onstage in Hungary. Alas, shortly after Dracula (1931), he was typecast as the heavy, and this would pretty much be the only romantic kiss he got to share in USA, on the big screen. See more »

Goofs

When Nina is shot at the end, she holds her stomach but soon removes her hand, showing her dress is intact and revealing the complete absence of gunshot wound or blood. See more »

Good Silent Melodrama
10 January 2016 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

Nicholas Harmon (Bela Lugosi) is a fan of the arts and he finds himself in-love with Anna (Lila Lee) - the same woman his stepson, Don, is in love with. Things get ugly between Nicholas and Don - who will Anna choose or will she decide to forget both of them?

The visuals in the film are stunning - in particular the stage performances with Anna. The love-triangle story is interesting enough to keep me watching. I also enjoyed the piano music throughout the entire film - very nice to hear.

I was surprised to find a good copy of the film to watch - and I was not disappointed. It's a much better movie than I guessed it would be. Bela Lugosi fans should enjoy this film quite a bit.

7/10
