Not bad but nothing else.

I received it from a rare stuff batch of movies. Directed by the great Jack Cardiff, I couldn't miss it. Van Johnson is always worth too. But the story itself brings really nothing unusual. Everything is predictable, so shame. It remains nevertheless a good standard drama from UK. I have never liked all those falsely accused of murder tales, with the close friend or relative trying to prove the innocence of the accused. You may watch this kind of features, but I feel boredom. That doesn't mean this is boring. What I say is my own opinion.

I am surprised that no one has commented it yet.

In resume, one film among many others of this kind. Nothing else.
