The Lady from the Sea (DVD)
Future Oscar winner Ray Milland, Mexican screen siren Mona Goya, and Moore Marriott best known for his comic collaborations with Will Hay and Graham Moffatt through the 1930s star in this romantic drama from 1929. Originally released as a silent feature with sound added on its 1930 re-release, The Lady from the Sea (aka Goodwin Sands) is presented here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio. It should be noted that the opening titles are mute.
Handsome young fisherman Tom Roberts is among the crew of a lifeboat that rescues Frenchwoman Claire le Grange, sole survivor of a shipwreck on the treacherous Goodwin Sands. Tom’s marriage to his own sweetheart, Mary, is postponed owing to injuries he sustained in the dramatic rescue, and during his convalescence he falls for the charms of the flirtatious Claire.
