Are Show Biz People Human?
King Clark is the son of a prosperous farmer. In the city he gets a job and falls in love with stage dancer Vivian Rich. They are happy, but when Mr. Clark's mother finds out, she comes to the city to ask Miss Rich to leave her son, because she after all, "a common dancer." Miss Rich refuses and her mother-in-law sends her letters regularly asking her to leave her son. Finally, she agrees mysteriously.
To the modern audience, this attitude towards the Terpsichorean arts looks ridiculous, but it was a widespread attitude of the era, especially among the audience of "Flying A", the American Film Corporation.
Even so, Miss Rich's leavetaking is mysterious in terms of story line. It all looks foolish, one way or the other, and I imagine it did at the time this was produced.
