Synopsis by Hal Erickson
No relation to the 1963 Sidney Poitier film of the same name, the 1934 British feature Lilies of the Field is based on an oft-filmed play by John Hastings Turner. Winifred Shotter and Judy Gunn star as Betty and Kitty Beverley, rivals for the affections of handsome Guy Mallory (Anthony Bushell). Rejecting the notion that Guy is interested only in "modern" women, Betty elects to go the prim-and-proper route. To absolutely no one's surprise, she wins her man in the last reel. Lilies of the Field was distributed stateside by United Artists (who ironically also released the much-later Poitier film).
