Fay Farbre, lovable red headed torch singer coveting wealth and ease well within her seeking grasp, only to find herself hopelessly enmeshed in a great genuine love. Mattie Smith, spinster, seeking the great adventure. Diane Descarte, golden haired wife on leave. Amos Duffrey, generous, ruthless Wall Street magnate. Angel Perdita, soft tongued, double crossing gigolo. Some of these people you will condemn. Others you will pity. But none can fail to arouse your interest and sympathy."
