IMDb lists no less than 12 versions of this tale.This is a British quota film made in 1948.It is rather disappointing.It just meanders along for the first half an hour and really squeezes the plot developments into the last half hour.Being a rather cheaply produced film the ending is done in a way that leaves more to the imagination.To bring off that style you need to have the inspiration of someone like Val Lewton.Needless to say this is not an attribute of this production.There is an appearance by a young ish Sydney Tafler shown with 2 fs in his surname.All told rather disappointing.At least i have reviewed the film unlike 2 of the reviews on this page.
