The Secret of the Loch is a 1934 British film about the Loch Ness Monster. This is the first ever movie about this monster. Screenwriter Charles Bennett claimed that the film was based on his original idea.

The film was shot on the wave of popularity of the Loch Ness monster. Until the 30s of the XX century, the Loch Ness monster was described as a classic Kelpie (water horse). But in 1932, after a long break, a message appeared about a certain Miss McDonald, who claimed to have seen a creature resembling a crocodile with a short head in the lake. This story gave rise to the idea of the monster as a surviving dinosaur or a lizard-like cryptid. After that, many testimonies about the observation of this monster were published.

Obviously, this film could only strengthen these ideas in popular culture. Unfortunately, we have not yet been able to find it on media or in online cinemas, but it would be wrong not to mention it.
