An American World War I soldier, whose disfigured face is reconstructed by Austrian plastic surgeons, returns home after twenty years, but no one recognizes him, his widow is married to another man, and his son is a grown young man.
Before marrying "Lawrence Hamilton", Claudette Colbert's character is named "Elizabeth MacDonald". She would later play another character with the same name, Elizabeth (Betty) MacDonald, in The Egg and I (1947).
John Andrew MacDonald:
Here is the one you wait for. No other man is your husband.
As is typical of the era, Welles and Brent realistically appear two decades older after the prologue, but Colbert looks like she hasn't aged a single day.
