Unique and thrilling film. The relationship between Davies' character and Mills' character is interesting to follow. Another top notch production from The Rank Organization.

Remarkable movie based on the D. H. Lawrence short story of the same name. An overlooked dark gem from this period in English cinema, as is Queen of Spades by Thorold Dickinson of the much better-known and also excellent Gaslight. John Howard Davies, future BBC Head of Comedy and Thames Television Head of Light Entertainment, does a great job.
