"Caravan" was a 1946 film. Based on a novel by Eleanor Smith, it tells of a late 19th century writer Richard Darrell (Stewart Granger), who saves Don Carlos (Gerard Heinz) from two robbers. Don Carlos charges him with taking a valuable necklace to Spain and, bidding farewell to his fiancée Oriana (Anne Crawford), Richard sets out. On the way he meets Wycroft (Robert Helpmann), who assaults, robs and nearly kills Richard on behalf of his dastardly master Sir Francis Castteldow (Dennis Price), an aristocrat aiming to steal Oriana from Richard. Oriana thinks Richard dead and so marries Francis, whilst Richard loses his memory as a result of the assault and marries a gypsy girl, Rosal (Jean Kent). However, everyone will meet again...
