Three Girls Lost is a 1931 American Pre-Code drama film directed by Sidney Lanfield and starring Loretta Young, Lew Cody, and John Wayne. The film also featured Ward Bond (in a small unbilled role), and co-starred Wayne with Paul Fix for the first time. Based on a story by Robert Hardy Andrews, the film is about a young man (Wayne) who finds himself suspected of involvement in the murder of a gangster.
Architect Gordon Wales finds his pretty young neighbor Marcia Tallant locked out of her apartment and flirts with her. He later is instrumental in getting her a job working for a gangster named William Marriott. When Marriott is murdered, suspicion falls on Wales after the police come to believe he was jealous of Marriott's relationship with Marcia. Unbeknownst to the police however, Wales had actually found himself attracted to Marcia's roommate Norene. When Wales is accused of murder, Norene uses her influence to obtain legal aid for him.
