The Woman Tempted is a 1926 British silent drama film directed by Maurice Elvey and starring Juliette Compton, Warwick Ward and Nina Vanna.[1] It was based on a novel by Vera, Countess Cathcart.[2] The film was shot at Cricklewood Studios, and was backed by John Maxwell's Wardour Films which was dramatically increasing its role in the film industry. It was first given a trade show screening in June 1926, but did not go on full release until the following March. By that time Elvey had departed to work for Maxwell's rival Gaumont-British.[3]
