Time to get the title confusion sorted out.

This film was released in the USA on June 6, 1931 as "Forbidden Adventure", hence the source of the on-site lobby cards under using that title. Paramount, for whatever reason, called back the "Forbidden Adventure" prints and printed material from their film exchanges (some of which had already been sent to theatres and escaped the call-back) and sent out changed-title prints on June 20, 1932 as "Newly Rich."
