~Plot Synopsis~
This was Miriam Cooper's last film, and in her autobiography, Dark Lady of the Silents, she claimed
"It was not only the worst movie I'd ever been in, it was the worst movie I'd ever seen." She was
probably exaggerating a bit, because reviews of the day indicate that it was somewhat better than
mediocre. Philip Marvin (Kenneth Harlan) is flying cross-country in hopes of setting a new record,
but his plane goes down during a storm, and crashes through the roof of a ranch on the Mexican
border. Inez Villera (Cooper), the foster daughter of the owner, has been praying for a husband and
she believes that Marvin's sudden appearance is a message from God. Marvin, meanwhile, has lost
his memory, but he likes Inez, who eagerly cares for him. But a certain Captain Santos (Walter Long)
wants Inez for himself, and he causes trouble by asking Marvin's relatives for a huge ransom. The
secret service foils the plan, and when Marvin's memory returns, he and Inez wed. This
comedy-drama based on the play by Paul Dickey and Charles W. Stoddard was filmed again in 1932,
with Lupe Velez and Melvyn Douglas starring.
