The Light That Failed

The Light That Failed

1939, Drama
British artist Dick Heldar (Ronald Colman) suffers a head injury during a battle in the Sudan. As a result, his eyesight begins to deteriorate. This is especially unfortunate, as admiration for his war paintings has grown incredibly. In London, he throws his soul into painting his masterwork, a portrait of Bessie (Ida Lupino), a barmaid, before his vision fails entirely. Bessie, however, is in love with Dick's friend Torpenhow (Walter Huston), a situation that sparks a series of tragedies.
