Douglass Montgomery's second to last film may be "lost."
Of Douglass Montgomery's 22 films, spanning two decades, this second to last effort, like his final film, was produced in the UK and may be among the lost. I have not been able to locate a print in any archive (USA and UK).
The story is thus: Based on a war-horse stage play, this was the third film version. David, a Canadian officer attached to the British Secret Service is unhappily married to a socialite, so throws himself into his espionage work. Undercover in Paris, he falls for a cabaret dancer. He must evacuate when the Nazis arrive, unaware that the dancer is pregnant.
Years later, he learns of the pregnancy and begins a search for both the girl and his child. However, he is unaware they are living in London, practically under his nose.
The above relies heavily on Hal Erickson's summary in the All Movie Guide.
If anyone is aware of the existence of this film, I would appreciate being contacted by email.
