This British WWI drama was directed by Sinclair Hill, who also penned the original screenplay. Henry Victor stars as John Grimlaw, a ruthless armaments manufacturer. Grimlaw is in love with Diana (Madeline Carroll, in her film debut), while she in turn is partial to Clive (Donald McArdle), an army officer. Even so, Diana wavers between both men, unable to make a commitment even as they march off to the battlefields of France. Under fire for the first time in his life, Grimlaw loses his nerve, much to the delight of Clive. Taunted mercilessly by his rival, Grimlaw regains his courage, saving his entire company and losing his eyesight in the process. Returning home at wars' end, Grimlaw single-handedly settles a strike at his old factory. Impressed by his surfeit of new-found bravery, Diana chooses Grimlaw as her husband. Future film favorite Hermione Baddeley shows up in a minor role.
