Girls Will Be Boys is a 1934 British comedy film directed by Marcel Varnel and starring Dolly Haas, Cyril Maude and Esmond Knight.[1] It is based on The Last Lord, a play by Kurt Siodmak.[2] Haas made this, her first English-language film, following a Nazi-led riot at the premiere of her previous film Das häßliche Mädchen, and in 1936 fled Germany altogether.[3]
