An awkward and confusing love affair begins when Norene is locked out of her apartment, which she shares with two other girls, and is let in by her neighbor, Gordon Wales.  Gordon is an architect who is working on a project for a client with underworld connections.  When the client is murdered Gordon is arrested for the murder because of the attention the mobster had shown to Norene.  To complicate matters, one of Norene’s roommates has the hots for Gordon and is trying to sabotage their relationship.  Can Norene keep the man of her dreams and overcome the obstacles fate is putting between them?

Three Girls Lost was filmed in the pre-code era, a time between the inclusion of sound in films, and the advent of the Motion Pictures Production Code censorship guidelines in 1930.  Although technically the code was issued in 1930, it was not really enforced until 1934, so movies prior to its enforcement are also considered pre-code.  Pre-code movies were much racier than their after-code counterparts, including sexual innuendos, profanity, illegal drug use, and references to homosexuality, infidelity and abortion.  Pre code movies also showed much more sexually suggestive attire.

John Wayne was 24 years old during the making of Three Girls Lost.

John Wayne was unhappy with the roles he was getting with Fox, and the studio cancelled his contract before the release of Three Girls Lost.
