Gerry Marsh is a hat-check girl in a nightclub surrounded by bootleggers, blackmailers and others before she falls in love with millionaire playboy Buster Collins. Gerry is supported by her girlfriend Jessie.
Although the credits acknowledge an original story by Gordon Morris & Morton Barteau called 'Auf Wiedersehen', the footsteps in which this film seems most strongly to be following is David Belasco's hit Broadway fantasy of 1911, 'The Return of Peter Grimm' (filmed twice in the silent era and again in 1935 with Lionel Barrymore); especially as screenwriter Bradley Page had also scripted the 1926 version with Alec B. Francis directed by Victor Schertzinger.
Despite the hourglass & pendulum accompanying the opening titles, the talky plot belies the race against the clock suggested by the title, and a religious element increasingly intrudes as the film progresses. It is vaguely implied that Warner Baxter has now seen the afterlife, from which he has returned temporarily with clairvoyant powers (since he knows in advance why John Boles arrives late) and a new-found belief in God.
