Barrister Melville Farr (Bogarde) has a promising career and an apparently happy marriage, but an incident from his past finds him drawn into a ring of blackmailers targeting (then illegal) gay men. The first English language film to utter the forbidden word ‘homosexual’ was a cultural hand grenade, theUSgoing to the lengths of banning it for a few months until the overthrow of the Hays Code. Dearden was known for making ‘social problem’ films, and with the cast including three gay actors, this film remains a touchstone for a generation’s sexual liberation.
