A rather ridiculous war time romance, The Splendid Sinner was one of two films to star opera diva Mary Garden. The Scottish-born singer played Dolores Fargis, who loses her husband (Hamilton Revelle) when her sordid past is revealed. Years later, the couple is reunited in, of all places, war-torn Germany, where he is a captured soldier, and she is a Red Cross nurse. Reformed and repentant, Dolores saves the life of her former husband before bravely facing a firing squad. Deprived of her famous vocal chords, Garden was not much of an actress, and she quickly returned to the Metropolitan and other opera venues.
