) is an All-Talking musical drama film based on the play Misdeal
by Basil Woon.
In this drama, a 50 year old married man (played by John Halliday
) goes to with his wife (Belle Bennett
) and son (Junior Durkin
) to a nightclub in a fancy hotel in Detroit. He meets a gold-digger (Dorothy Burgess
) there, singing the theme song of the picture, and eventually ends up going out with her on a subsequent occasion and falls in love with her. His wife finally finds out and this leads to her leaving him and getting a divorce in Paris. He is married to the gold-digger but finds life with her and her "jazz friends" to be too much for him. He begins to long for his old wife when he finds her in a nightclub with another man (Richard Tucker, not the famous tenor
) and becomes jealous.
The Sisters "G" (Eleanor Gutchrlein and Karla Gutchrlein) appear in the elaborate tango dance number at the beginning of the film. They were hired by Warner Bros. to star in a number of musical pictures but they left late in 1930 due to a backlash against musicals after appearing in only two more pictures, which proved to be their last.
The theme song is "If You Want to Be" and is sung by Dorothy Burgess. The entire movie has a musical track which features popular hits of the day as well as the theme song.
The film survives complete.
