One of several British films produced and directed by American moviemaker Larry Trimble, Caste gets under way when the hero, played by Sir John Hare, defies his family's wishes and marries a chorus girl. Disgraced in the eyes of "proper" society, Hare deserts his new wife and joins his regiment in South Africa, where he is later reported to be missing in action. Meanwhile, Hare's wife returns to her old neighborhood and bears her husband's child. Several years pass before the very-much-alive Hare returns to entreat his wife's forgiveness. Though billed first, the delightful Peggy Hyland was wasted in the role of the hero's wisecracking sister.
