Beautiful Marie Chaumontel ( Louise Glaum ) accumulates as many state secrets as she discards lovers. Captain Henry Ravignac (Jerome Storm) commits suicide because of her, after which his brother, Lieutenant Charles Ravignac (Howard Hickman), vows revenge. As a result, he pretends to be a German spy and then becomes an assistant to Marie, all the while gathering evidence against her. Finally, he accumulates enough to hand her over to French authorities, after which he is hailed as a hero for so damaging German espionage operations.
This 1916 war/drama was based on the novel, Somewhere in France by Richard Harding Davis. The film version was produced by Kay-Bee Pictures and distributed by Triangle Distributing. Starring the glamorous actress Louise Glaum, this film's whereabouts is now listed as unknown. Hopefully a copy survives.
I painted this a lifetime ago, in fact I’d pretty much forgotten Somewhere in France. It’s about thirty five years old but fortunately cousin Geof is not so careless with things as I am and was able to remind me with this photograph.
Ten of the photographs will be on display near the café at ICP. They were first shown at the Visa pour lImage photojournalism festival in Perpignan last September in an exhibition curated by Pledge, and later published in a book, Quelque part en France: lété 1944 de John G. Morris (Somewhere in France: John G. Morris and the Summer of 1944).
