No relation to the 1968 John Cassavetes film of the same name, the 1934 Faces is a compact British romantic melodrama. Anna Lee plays a beautician who harbors dreams of wealth and luxury. She becomes the mistress of a millionaire, leaving her poor-but-true boyfriend Harold French in the lurch. Lee quickly changes her ways when she befriends the amiable wife of her wealthy "protector". Faces was adapted from a play by Patrick Ludlow and Walter Soames; the latter appears in the film as the philandering millionaire.
