Description by OLDIES.com:

That little number called Angel Face (Norma Shearer) is sure a cutie. No wonder men lose their hearts to her... just before they lose their wallets! Draped in Adrian gowns and exuding saucy charm, Shearer makes her last silent film a fun one, portraying a tough cookie who falls among thieves even shadier than she is, cons them at their own grifts and marries what she thinks is a wealthy young son of the South. (She got the young and South parts right.) But love conquers all, and she opts for penniless wedded bliss - until her old partners in crime show up and threaten to spill the beans. But they're still no match for Angel Face.

Product Description:

In her last silent film, Norma Shearer plays Dolly, aka Angel Face, a young woman engaged in blackmailing rich libertines. Cheated out of her loot by a couple of former associates, Bradley (Lowell Sherman) and Gwen (Gwen Lee), Dolly commits a bit of larceny but manages to skip town with her latest victim, Steve Crandall (Johnny Mack Brown), a Southern-fried cement tycoon whom she hastily marries. But Steve turns out to be a pauper, his much vaunted plantation actually belonging to a neighbor, and Dolly's game is up when Brad and Gwen make an unannounced arrival. But Dolly has fallen in love with her poor but hardworking husband and is ready to take her punishment. Steve, meanwhile, convinces a judge to release Dolly into his custody and the lovers are reunited. A LADY OF CHANCE was released with added dialogue scenes but none of them apparently featured Miss Shearer, who instead made her talkie debut in the courtroom melodrama THE TRIAL OF MARY DUGAN (1929).
