In post-war Cape Breton, a doctor's efforts to tutor a deaf/mute woman are undermined when she is raped, and the resulting pregnancy causes scandal to swirl.
Stephen McNally, who played the hideous "Locky McCormick" character role, in the theatrical film, also played the saintly doctor in the Broadway production, just to prove he could play a friendly or a diabolical (evil) character role.
Dr. Robert Richardson:
Your Lordship, I insist this girl obeyed an impulse older than the laws of man: the instinct of a mother to protect her child.
When Belinda fires one barrel of what looks like a 12 gauge, double-barreled, shotgun at Locky McCormick, there is no recoil of any kind, not even a slight twitch. That seems very unlikely given the size of the gun.
Also shown in computer colorized version.
