Plot Summary

Acclaimed playwright Lucius Drake (Fredric March) has plans for a new opus, but his wife, actress Jane Drake (Loretta Young), would rather retire to the idyllic countryside than star in another play. Alas, their union dissolves in divorce, and Jane marries banker William Dudley (Allyn Joslyn), who is more amenable to her plans. On their honeymoon, however, Jane discovers that her divorce from Lucius was invalid, and Lucius does all he can to prevent her from consummating her marriage to Dudley.
