Plot & Details

Loretta Young is (mis)cast as a prima ballerina, who reaches the top of her profession and marries her demanding instructor (Conrad Veidt). Still, Loretta can't help reminiscing on the past loves in her life. She flashes back to her early days as a circus bareback rider and recalls all her former beaux (including Dean Jagger and John Shepperd, a.k.a. Shepperd Strudwick). Loretta comes to the conclusion that the most important person in her life has been her loving mother (Eugene Leontovich), with whom she has a tear-stained reconciliation. Men in Her Life was based on the novel Ballerina, by Lady Eleanor Smith.
