Summary

A British soldier goes off to fight in World War I, and his girlfriend waits and worries at home. He is soon wounded in battle. When he realizes that he is crippled, he comes to the conclusion that she would be better off believing that he was killed so she can get on with her life. She gets the news and is devastated. Several years later she is still grieving for him, but he has now been cured and goes looking for her.

Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

Of interest only to historians or those addicted to "Our Gracie", this worse-than-mediocre film made Gracie Fields a star and gave her her lifelong signature song, Sally. Directed by Maurice Elvey and co-starring Ian Hunter - both remembered for rather better work than this - the plot has Gracie as a teashop entertainer who believes her boyfriend has been killed in the war. Of course he hasn't been, and they are happily reunited after Florence Desmond loses the competition for his affections.
