We'd like to find an Ethel M. Dell novel that wasn't made into a British silent film. Dell's The Eleventh Hour relates the travails of Madge White, daughter of career officer M. Gray Murray. Hoping to escape the nomadish life of an "army brat," Madge marries farmer Dennis Wyndham, whom she does not love. Quickly tiring of farm life, Madge walks out on Wyndham, but returns at the "eleventh hour"--just in time to prevent his suicide. This 1922 film bears no relation to the 1923 American adventure flick of the same name.
