SYNOPSIS:
Lally is devastated when her parents' marriage breaks up. She determines
never to marry but soon falls in love with a handsome young man who turns
out to be the son of her father's mistress. This early talkie is rough in places
but overall is an enjoyable hour of entertainment. Unique in the fact that
Montgomery's character is not a cad in this one.
