Most contemporary critics agreed that the 1926 remake of the 1919 "stiff upper lip" drama Flag Lieutenant was a decided improvement on the original. The plot remains relatively intact: accused of cowardice under fire, Lt. Dicky Lascelles (Henry Edwards) is ostracized by his peers. The only person who knows that Lascelles is actually a hero is his superior officer, Major Thesiger (Fred Raynham). Alas, the major is suffering from amnesia and cannot come to his defense. It is up to the heroine, Sybil Wynne (Lillian Oldland), to uncover the truth. Produced on a grand scale, The Flag Lieutenant was deemed worthy of an American release--a rarity in the British film industry of the mid-1920s.
