The Guns of Loos is a 1928 British sound war film directed by Sinclair Hill and starring Henry Victor, Madeleine Carroll, and Bobby Howes.[1] The film was given a limited release as a silent film before being converted into a sound film late in 1928. While the sound version of the film has no audible dialog, it was released with a synchronized musical score with sound effects using both the sound-on-disc and sound-on-film process. Like the majority of films from the early sound era, this film was made available in a silent version for theatres that had not yet converted to sound.

A blind veteran of the First World War returns home to run his family's industrial empire.[2]



The film featured a theme song entitled “If You’d but Say You Care” which was composed by Arthur Crocker and Harry Major.

Production background

Carroll was selected for the role from 150 applicants to play her role.[3] It was her first film role and helped launch her career.

Daniel Laidlaw, an army piper who won the Victoria Cross while rallying his company at the 1915 Battle of Loos, plays himself.[4]


In 2011, sheet music for Richard Howgill's score, meant to be performed live for the silent version of the film, was rediscovered in Birmingham Central Library.[5]
