Storyline

A man asks a pretty young woman for a dance and discovers that she has been paralyzed in a fall from a horse and can't walk. Taking pity on her, he begins spending more and more time with her. They gradually become friends, and she soon finds herself falling in love with him. Not wanting to hurt her feelings, he doesn't let her know that, although he's fond of her, he doesn't really love her. Unfortunately, she inadvertently finds out his true feelings and, distraught, flees from him, intending to kill herself. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Audience voted with it's feet!
7 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie when first screened. It was the first and only time I've seen an audience near riot.The cinema was THE LIME HOUSE in Prescot near Liverpool UK. We were about ten minutes into the screening when the audience commenced banging feet and catcalling.The noise was appalling and the showing was cancelled,the manager called for a show of hands,there was not one vote from a crowded cinema to continue the show.

Remember this was 1946\7 preTV.in the UK. It was BEWARE OF PITY or nothing,the crowd opted for the latter.The manager had no choice but to offer money back or a free ticket for a future show.At that time people were more restrained {1946\47}; which made it all the more extraordinary.Sadly in these days an incident such as this would not be noteworthy
