Storyline

Lord Brasted is in charge of a postwar fund for displaced persons. His secretary, Derek Waterhouse, visits the Prime Minister to accuse Brasted of taking money from the fund. This results in a libel case made difficult for Waterhouse for several reasons: the man who uncovered the fraud has committed suicide - or been murdered - in Prague, Lady Brasted is an old flame and being pretty devious, and he has been seeing the prosecuting lawyer's daughter.

A Dull Plot
18 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I rated this movie 5/10 mainly because of the actors & actresses in leading parts whom I admire, especially Eric Portman and Anne Crawford after their characters romance in "Millions like Us" (1943), Michael Denison as Algernon Montcrief in "The Importance of being Earnest" (1952) and Claire Bloom in her first leading role.However the plot is a dull one and too talky which other users above have noted and with their opinions I concur. There is not enough locational footage to relieve the somewhat claustrophobic setting, as the film seems to be 95% shot in the film studio.I like to see daylight occasionally in my favourite films!
