Filmmaker Maurice Cloche penned the original story upon which La Fille Aux Yeux Gris was based. The title, which translates as Girl with Grey Eyes, refers to the foster daughter (Claudia Genia) of a travelling medical charlatan (Blondeau). Alcoholic country doctor Bernard (Fernand Ledoux) is the girl's actual father, though neither he nor anyone else knows this for several reels. The plot shifts into gear when young Dr. Bernier (Jean Paqui), Bernard's successor, falls in love with the heroine. Running way too long, La Fille Aux Yeux Gris would be an exercise in boredom were in not for the multifaceted performance of star Fernand Ledoux.
