Believing his wife to be unfaithful, a husband deserts her and his child. Destitute, the woman is forced to take a job as a tango dancer.
Relatively routine melodrama, which would not have been out of place at MGM about five years prior, the kind that Norma Shearer and Robert Montgomery always seemed to be hovering around. By 1936 the plot of the potentially irreconcilable class differences between mates seems rather trite, but perhaps with the Depression still waging it might have been more potent than we can discern sixty plus years later. Certainly, with the Production Code in full force by 1936, it avoids any notion of impropriety and one is left to wonder if in the original source material, a novel by Missouri author Vida Hurst, some elements were a bit more realistic.
