Description by OLDIES.com:
Classic Hollywood offers another compassionate melodrama of the heart in his tale of a woman who loves unwisely, flees her past and finds new love...only to have the past cast its shadow on her happiness. Kay Francis plays Belinda Warren, the trusting plaything of a titled Englishman (Patric Knowles) with an invalid wife. Belinda gives birth to their child, and then lets her caddish lover adopt the baby. Later she marries a good man (George Brent), but the memory of her lost child haunts her, threatening to tear her marriage apart. The film's poignancy is comically offset by deliciously wry work from co-star Roland Young and elegantly offset by chic flats, tinkling cocktail glasses and a knockout array of bias-cut gowns for the heartbroken leading lady.
Kay Francis, Warner Bros.' resident "wronged woman," was the star of GIVE ME YOUR HEART. Francis plays a socialite whose illicit romance with married Patric Knowles results in a baby. When the father, a titled Englishman of means, declares that the child would be better off in his care, Ms. Francis suffers luxuriously in a series of fashionable evening gowns. She finds lasting happiness in the arms of attorney George Brent. GIVE ME YOUR HEART was based on Joyce Carey's stage play SWEET ALOES, and bore that title when released in Great Britain.
