The Lost Chord is a 1933 British drama film directed by Maurice Elvey and starring John Stuart, Elizabeth Allan and Jack Hawkins.[1] The screenplay concerns a musician who becomes embroiled in the domestic rows of an aristocratic family. It was inspired by the Arthur Sullivan song The Lost Chord. Two earlier films directed by Wilfred Noy The Lost Chord (1917) and The Lost Chord (1925) were both also based on the song. The film was made at Twickenham Studios. [2]
