Description by OLDIES.com:

Screen legend Bela Lugosi gives a sinister performance as Nicholas Harmon, an opera house lothario who is obsessed with beautiful young girls. Disgusted with his stepfather's debauchery, Don Harmon renounces the family fortune and moves out. He takes a job conducting a nightclub orchestra, and falls in love with Anna, the beautiful singer who headlines the show. When Nicholas sees Anna, he is instantly smitten by her charms, and is determined to steal her away.

The Midnight Girl is Bela Lugosi's third appearance in an American film, released six years before he achieved stardom in Universla's classic, Dracula. Lila Lee stars as Anna, the ingenue soprano. Groomed by Paramount to replace their recalcitrant star, Gloria Swanson, Lee rose to prominence in films such as Blood and Sand (1922), Love, Live And Laugh (1929) and The Unholy Three (1930).

Rating 4.0 Lovely Lila Lee Movie Lover: from BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND AU -- July, 2, 2014

Bela Lugosi may have prominent place on the
cover but acting honours go to lovely Lila Lee.
She is "the Midnight Girl" dancing at a local
cabaret while she follows her operatic dream.
Lugosi is lecherous Nicholas Harmon, a patron
of the Arts who is looking around for his next
conquest. He has fought with his son, Don,
a struggling musician who has discovered
Anna (Lee) while living at the same boarding
house. Lee has a big "fighting for her honour"
scene with Nicholas which she plays for all
she is worth.
The ending has to be seen to be believed!!
The print is fuzzy but for a 1925 Chadwick
you can't expect much more!!
