I Lived with You is Ivor Novello’s 1933 film adaptation of his own hit stage play about a homeless Russian prince who is taken in by an ordinary London family. Director Maurice Elvey directed Gaumont’s first talking film and Britain’s first film in colour. An almost unrecognisable Jack Hawkins, aged 22, plays jealous boyfriend Mort.
