David Lean directs Ann Todd, Ivan Desny and Norman Woolan in the British true crime story of a forbidden romance in Victorian Glasgow that ends in a mysterious death and trial.
A bit more sexually frank and ambiguous than you might expect from a British period film of this era. There are some good moments of scene setting (a highland fling / middle class chemists) and some well handled untrustworthy intrigue. I actually enjoyed the open ended court case that consumed the final third.
