Cage of Gold

Cage of Gold is a 1950 British drama film directed by Basil Dearden, and starring Jean Simmons, David Farrar, and James Donald.


A young woman, Judith Moray, deserts her prospective fiancé, the nice doctor Alan Kearn, for an old flame - the dashing, but roguish, former wing commander Bill Glennan. Glennan makes her pregnant and marries her, but leaves her on the morning after the wedding when he learns that her father can't offer him financial support. Two years later, she - having been told that Glennan is dead - has married Kearn and they keep Glennan's son. But then, Glennan suddenly re-appears, and begins to blackmail her.
