Just released from prison, a young woman arrives in town to "start a new life", but soon begins stalking a married construction worker for no apparent reason, turning his life inside out and eventually terrorizing him and his wife.
This propaganda film, directed by Robert Stevenson, is available on the DVD for "Jane Eyre". The legendary Frank Capra served as producer.
Fun things we learn: Britain has "more congestion" than any place on Earth except a New York subway or a sardine can... and yet they have low levels of crime and the police do not carry guns! And no place in Britain is more than 100 miles from the sea!
While this is called a "propaganda" film, it should be noted that it does not actually carry all the negative baggage that the word propaganda implies today. Sure, it is promoting a political purpose... but it also happens to be rather informative. Audiences today might learn a good deal about how England was brought into World War II by watching it.
