Storyline

Millicent Hopkins, while touring with a dancing troupe in 1892, meets Clive Loring who is campaigning in the English Midlands for Parliament. They fall in love and Millie remains behind at the home of her father while her friend, Rose Bridges and the rest of the company go to London. Lord Belmont, Clive's older brother, tells Millie that a marriage below Clive's station will jeopardize his future happiness. She resolves to drop out of his life and, without telling him, rejoins the troupe at the Empire Theatre. Mille and Rose, leaving the theatre without removing their makeup, are stopped and questioned by a bobby. They flee and Millie takes refuge in the rooms of a sympathetic stranger, Jose Martinez, a Spanish concert pianist, where she remains most of the night. The next morning, a Scotland Yard Inspector arrives and arrests Martinez. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Interesting film with a more modern theme
21 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a well done film based in the Victorian era with Teresa Wright (as an actress/dancer) and Ray Milland as a London Public Official facing scandal after her involvement with Anthony Quinn prior to their marriage. With a Downton Abbey type feel to the movie, there are hidden identities and backgrounds when confronted with the past as well as a tense last courtroom scene where a character faces the gallows unless the big secret is revealed. Interestingly enough, the secret is big and though downplayed for the time period this was made, was actually quite dramatic and scandalous for the time and did pave the way for a happy ending. I saw this online actually and is in very good condition to watch. I recommend it for its adult storyline, well acted players and a surprise denouement.
