After three years' worth of enforced inacitivity, director Henri Decoin returned to films with La Fille du Diable. The title, which translates to The Devil's Daughter, refers to heroine Andree Clement. Though not actually the offspring of Satan, Clement, a small-town girl, is treated as an outcast after a series of emotional and sexual disasters. With no one to turn to, the girl opts for death rather than continuing dishonor. The strong supporting cast includes Pierre Fresnay and Fernand Ledoux. A success in France, La Fille du Diable did less well elsewhere.
