Tallulah's second Paramount film was another murky melodrama in which she plays a hostess of a nightclub in Panama who shoots her blackmailing husband. After a sympathetic lawyer gets her acquitted, she moves to New York with a new name and falls in love with a wealthy young man, but conflicts arise when people from her past show up in New York. Tallulah's reviews were respectable, but many critics were asking why she could not be given better roles.
