Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Three Faces East was one of several films produced under the supervision of Cecil B. DeMille at the old Pathe Studios. Based on a play by Anthony Paul Kelly, the film stars Jetta Goudal as Frances Hawtree, alias British Secret Agent Z-1. Posing as one Fraulein Marks, Frances pretends to be working on behalf of Germany during WWI. Her mission is to halt the activities of master spy Valdar (Clive Brook), who is currently employed as a butler in the home of a high-ranking British diplomat. Director Rupert Julian uses the film's wartime setting as another excuse to appear in a cameo role as Kaiser Wilhelm. Three Faces East was remade in 1930, then again as British Intelligence in 1940.
