Mary Ellis Runs from Bad Luck
Opera singer Marion Stuart (Mary Ellis) is about to make her starring debut in New York when she's questioned about the death of a friend in Texas. She flops and flees to Brazil where she works under an assumed name in the chorus. She gets another chance to star in an opera but she's implicated in another murder. This time she flees to Paris where she sings in a nightclub as Maleveo, Siren of Song. But bad luck continues to pursue her.

She's also stalked by a rich young man (Norman Foster) and his disapproving brother (Walter Pidgeon) as she careens from job to job. The older brother believes she is guilty until....

Ellis is terrific as the plagued singer, and Pidgeon is solid as the reluctant leading man. Co-stars include John Halliday as the arts patron, Edgar Kennedy as the manager, Ruth Donnelly as his wife, Guy Bates Post as Glinka, and Frank Puglia as Felipe.

This is one of three 1930s films Mary Ellis starred in at Paramount. She also starred in 2 British films in the 1930s but was more successful on Broadway and the operatic stage.
