Plot Summary

On a cruise to Cuba, Lulu Smith falls in love with Bob Grover. Back home, she breaks off the romance when he tells her he is married. Lulu has a baby, but doesn't tell Bob, who turns out to be a rising politician. She passes herself off as the baby's nanny. When Bob learns what is going on, he adopts the little girl, not telling his wife or anyone else where she came from. Lulu gets a job at a newspaper. Things get complicated when the editor gets the dirt on Grover, but also wants to marry Lulu. Written by John Oswalt

Trivia While filming the horse-riding scene on the beach, Barbara Stanwyck's horse was frightened by the movie lights, reared, threw the star off, and then kicked her on the way down. Stanwyck suffered a dislodged tail-bone, an injury which, though it didn't hold up production, did cause the actress discomfort for the rest of her life. See more »
Goofs The film begins in the present day, i.e. 1932. There is no attempt at period decor in any way; the automobiles, music, and clothing styles are all contemporary; twenty or thirty years pass by. The principals live out their lives, grow old, and die. Yet their surrounding environment never changes; it is still 1932. See more »
