Dir. James Whale (1931). Whale's sensitive adaptation of Robert Sherwood's play set in London during World War I stars Mae Clark in the finest performance of her career as an American chorus girl who sinks into prostitution after her soldier fiancé is reported missing in action. Look for the young Bette Davis in a small role. This is superior to the better-known and more costly 1940 remake with Vivien Leigh.
