Yes, the film was a bit stage bound with a bit of stock film thrown in, betraying its radio provenance but it held my attention to the end.Viewers will be pleased to note the entire film is on www.youtube.com so no need to hunt it down, you certainly will not see it on any UK classic film channel I subscribe to on TV.

As a connoisseur of these films,I was familiar with a large number of the cast.The glamorous Margaretta Scott, (with her Spanish blood and swarthy look)from "Quiet Wedding" and "Girl in the News", both from 1940 with my personal favourite Margaret Lockwood.We saw again Mr Jaggers(from Great Expectations 1946) with a younger Francis L Sullivan again playing the experienced barrister acting for the plaintiff - Clive Brook.Viewers who watch these older films obviously take into account the rather antiquated style of acting in the 1930s and to a much lesser extent in the 1940s and the limits of film production at this time and I suppose this accounts for the modest IMDb 5.8 user rating.I do find Ann Todd rather anodyne in the films I have seen in and this was no exception, just beautiful diction and elocution but that's about it.I however rated it 6.0
