The Faithful Heart is a 1932 British drama film directed by Victor Saville and starring Herbert Marshall, Edna Best and Mignon O'Doherty. It is based on the 1921 play The Faithful Heart by Monckton Hoffe.
At the turn of the century, a young waitress has a fling with a sailor on leave. He then departs for South Africa to fight in the Boer War and enjoys a distinguished career and is awarded a Victoria Cross for heroics in the First World War. Engaged to a high society heiress, his new status is changed by the sudden arrival of his long-lost daughter, the identical image of her now-deceased mother.
