Classic drama based on the play by Roland Pertwee. Googie Withers plays Pearl Bond, the frustrated wife of an 1880s Brighton tavern keeper. Looking for a way to escape her marriage, Pearl persuades a chemist's son to act as accomplice in a murder plot.

Format: DVD
OH YES!! I'd waited years for this to come out on Video and it didn't, and then DVD, now it's finally happened, and I still can't believe it!

One of Googie Withers' greatest movies (I contacted Ms. Withers about this movie some years ago and she was kind enough to reply from Australia) Googie made many great films during this period of her career, and was one of Britain's biggest film stars, but no part had as many close-up shots as this which are always so very difficult to do, and very demanding.

Pearl (Withers) is married to Publican Joe Bond who mistreats her. Having hardened her own persona to become accustomed to this she takes advantage of an impressionable young youth (Gordon Jackson) to forge her way into 'disposing' of her unwanted husband. But taking advantage of such an innocent does not come without its own just rewards, for Pearl is in love with a man who does not love her; a man who goes on to flaunt his 'other' woman under her very nose.

There's also the story of the family of the young man played by Gordon Jackson in all this, and the head of that household is Mervyn Johns. His wife (played by the talented actress Mary Merall) submits to his rule of authority - as does the rest of the family - unwillingly.

'...you're going to do horrible things to those darling little Guinea Pigs...' (I just loved Sally Ann Howes in this) is just one of the memorable and moving lines uttered in this marvellous script! And there's some real gems for scenes - like the one as Mervyn Johns and Mary Merall as man and wife climb the stairs to bed, whilst discussing the relationship they do not appear to have with their children - and why... Some wonderful dialogue.

There's nothing like coming out of a cinema after thoroughly enjoying what
you've just seen on the screen. Here's a classic case of that feeling.
It was the period when Ealing Studios was at the peak of its output.
This movie was superb in all departments...a good storyline,which though familiar,
has rarely been bettered,beautifully cast...a touching performance by Gordon
Jackson,a great femme fatale in Googie Withers,plus the always sterling work
by character actor,Mervyn Johns,and to round off,great photographically lit
sets.I highly recommend this excellent British film
