~Plot Synopsis~
Although she is desired by many men, musical comedy star Juliette La Monde remains faithful to
Morgan Grant, whose wife leaves him. When Juliette's mother becomes seriously ill, Juliette tries to
visit, but her stepfather, Robert Nicholson, who despises Juliette for disgracing the family, turns her
away. After his wife dies, Nicholson takes his seven-year-old daughter Francine to England. Ten
years later, Grant is growing tired of living with Juliette. After Nicholson dies of a stroke, Francine
goes to live with Juliette, who asks Grant to leave her home. When Juliette shows a motherly concern
that Francine smokes and drinks with her friends, Francine learns of Juliette's past and condemns
her. After Grant tries to lure Francine, who is infatuated with him, to his house, Juliette goes instead
and tries to get him to marry Francine. When Grant refuses, she shoots him during a struggle. Before
he dies, Grant realizes his love for Juliette and writes a suicide note to protect her. After Francine
marries a doctor's son, Juliette becomes a Red Cross nurse in France and saves Grant's widow, before
dying herself.
