A couple who have been married for 8 years, and can not have children, wish to adopt one. When going through the form-filling procedure, Mr. Graham pauses very noticeably at one form which allows the adoption agency to delve into their private lives and "check him out", if you will.
The reason for this pause is told in retrospect to the agent after it is found that he not only has another wife, but a son by her.
Joan Fontaine was the standout star from this film. Just watch her face in the final courtroom scene - her expression really speaks a thousand words.
A short film, but utterly compelling. If you get the chance to see it - do!
