Well done picture with Vera Ralston playing title role. She goes to jail for murder allowing slimy husband to escape. On her release she finds little sister in orphanage and vows to get her out. She becomes famous gambling queen and finances sister's singing career,unknown to the sister. Nice period sets and costumes with good direction by Alan Dwan with fine supporting cast. Muriel Lawrence shines as young soprano out to conquer world. Pity she only made three films. A bigger career wasn't in her future. Vera is very good.
