In London during WWI, Capt. Roy Cronin (Taylor), a soldier from an aristocratic family, begins a tragic romance with ballet dancer Myra Lester (Leigh) when they meet by chance on the foggy Waterloo Bridge. She loses her job and when Roy is listed as dead, Myra's despair turns her to prostitution. But when Roy returns from POW camp, they once again meet by accident on Waterloo Bridge, and their romance resumes, with Myra struggling to conceal her shameful secret. Four-hanky drama with fine performances by Leigh (her first after "Gone with the Wind") and Taylor. Based on the play by Robert E. Sherwood.
