Waterloo Bridge (1931)

Robert E. Sherwood’s 1930 play Waterloo Bridge was adapted for the screen in 1931 directed by James Whale and starring actress Mae Clarke; the director and star would reunite later that same year for Frankenstein. The story follows an American chorus girl who is forced into prostitution in World War I-era London to make ends meet, and her poignant romance with an American soldier.
