Description by

Helga, a poor farm girl, runs off from the lecherous brute who means to marry her and lands in the arms of a charming neighbor, engineer Rodney Spencer. When misfortune separates them, Helga seeks refuge with circus folk, then is forced to trade her body for survival in an uncaring world. Using the name Susan Lenox, the fallen woman rises high, all the way to a Manhattan penthouse. Her heart remains with Rodney. But Rodney, sickened by the path Helga has taken, finds solace in the bottle. This intense pre-Code romance is propelled by the incomparable star power of two of the greatest icons in Hollywood history - Greta Garbo and Clark Gable in their only screen pairing - as the ill-fated lovers. No film fan should miss it.

Product Description:

A young woman flees from her lout of a father and into the arms of her lover from whom she has been separated by hypocrisy and misfortune.

Plot Synopsis:

Two screen giants, Garbo and Gable, team up in this romantic melodrama. Susan, a young Swedish-American woman, is forced into an arranged marriage with a man she despises. Running away from home to avoid the union, she ends up in the arms of Rodney, an engineer. The two consummate their genuine love, but through an unfortunate set of circumstances. Susan engages a brief dalliance with a carnival owner. When Rodney finds out about the affair, he banishes Susan from his life -- but not his heart. Unable to cope with his sorrow and disappointment, Rodney gives up engineering and become a drunken vagabond. Susan goes on to lead a profitable existence as the consort of wealthy men. But her love for Rodney remains undimmed. Over the course of many years and through many changes in fortune, Susan pursues Rodney across the globe, determined to win his forgiveness.
