Hearts of Humanity is a 1936 British drama film directed by John Baxter and starring Bransby Williams, Wilfred Walter and Cathleen Nesbitt. The film was made at Shepperton Studios.[1] The film's art direction was by John Bryan. Like many of Baxter's films of the era it is set amongst the underprivileged.


Following a whispering campaign against him, a Church of England priest leaves his parish and disappears in London. Struck by remorse, one of his accusers gets his son to try and find him and make amends. Despite being from a wealthy background the young man spends time amongst the down-and-outs of city until he finds the heavily-disguised Reverend leading the poor in resistance against exploitation by a socially well-connected criminal gang.
