Trivia

This film was produced by Ripley-Monter Productions, with the intended release by Producer's Releasing Corporation (which was not the production company nor the 'producer',) but it was bought by United Artists, who was unable to meet their promise of releasing a specified number of films for the 1943-44 production season. In the same year, United Artists purchased many films from other companies, including eight or more from Paramount. See more »

Beautifully written, directed and acted independent film.
16 May 2000 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Rare that an independent film could be made of such maturity in a time of studio run films. Arthur Ripley helped create the character of Harry Langdon in the 20s. A skilled writer, he had a keen eye and his direction of him own screenplay for Voice in the Wind is tight, powerful and direct. I believe Francis Lederer gives one of his finest performances, with Sigrid Gurie as the wife he cannot remember. Best of all, keep your eyes on two character actors: Alexander Granach and J. Carol Naish. Both give in-depth character studies that are the backbone of this unusual film. Done on a shoestring budget during the powerful days of the major studios, the film is a character study in depth. If you can pick up a copy of it, it's more than worth it.

I wish I had more room to comment on this film, as I do know a few personal stories about how it came about. I knew Arthur Ripley when he was near the end of his career. Get a copy of this film.
