When an undergraduate commits suicide, his best friend Tom Betancourt is sent down from university because he did nothing to prevent the death, which he felt was a choice his friend had a right to make.
Very similar in plot and storyline to Sidney Lumet's " Child's Play" which was released the following year. See more »

hypotenuse... hypotenuse... hypotenuse
Who's that muttering?
He can't help it, sir.
He says 'hypotenuse' all the time, sir.
He likes the word.
Mr. Pelham said he was 'hypotenus-ed' by it, sir!

In the closing credits, when the names of actors playing the schoolboys appear they are listed in alphabetical order according to the character's surname. This is so as to resemble the class's register. The character of 'Zigo' appears at the very end but as he never appears in the film, instead of an actor being credited, it merely says "Zigo....Absent". See more »
John Ebony (David Hemmings) is hired to replace a teacher at a private boys school. It seems his predecessor had an "accident" and fell off a cliff to his death. John finds out that his students actually killed him and that he better toe the line...or else.
Obscure little British thriller. It's a little slow and not a great movie but worth catching. The acting by everyone is excellent and the matter of fact way the boys act about the murder is pretty disturbing. It starts off slow and things slowly escalate till it gets VERY upsetting during the last half hour. The only real debit is the students are (pretty obviously) way too old to be in school. Still this is worth catching. Not available on VHS or DVD but the whole film is on YouTube.
