One of the most popular light leading men at the advent of sound, Robert Ames starred opposite Marion Davies in Marianne (1929). But when Cosmopolitan Pictures, Davies' production company, decided to release a sound version, Ames found himself replaced by Cliff Edwards, whose ukulele was all over the place in those hectic days. Ames, who had starred on Broadway prior to his screen debut in What Women Want (1920), was equally noted for a restless private life, marrying and divorcing actresses Frances Goodrich, Vivienne Segal, and Muriel Oakes. He committed suicide in 1931.
