Cape Forlorn is a 1931 British drama film directed by Ewald André Dupont and starring Fay Compton, Frank Harvey and Ian Hunter.[2] It was the English-language version of a British International Pictures multiple-language production with France and Germany which also made Le cap perdu and Menschen im Käfig. The film is also known as The Love Storm.

It was based on a stage play by Harvey.


A lighthouse on a lonely coast of New Zealand is looked after by lighthouse keeper William Kell. Kell marries Eileen, a dancer in a cabaret, who winds up having an affair with Kell's assistant, Cass. Eileen then begins flirting with a stranger, Kingsley, an absconder who is rescued from the wreck of a motor launch. Kingsley and Cass quarrel; the woman rushes upon the scene with a revolver, fires blindly, and Cass Is shot dead.



Shooting took place in late 1930[3] and it was made in English, French and German.[4]


The film was originally banned in Australia by the censor[5] but this was overturned on appeal after a number of cuts were agreed upon.[6]

Reviews were poor.[7]

Shortly after the film was released in Australia, Harvey appeared in a production of the play at the Criterion Theatre in Sydney.[8] Harvey said this was in part because the film version had so changed his play.[9]
