"... I know that now, and always will..."
David Farrar was in some danger of being typecast as something of a cad around this time (Black Narcissus and 'Gone to Earth') and he puts in a good performance as usual here. There are also good supporting roles from some other stalwart actors.
But really this is Jean Simmons' film; she has a more rounded role here and to some folk she could do no wrong on the silver screen.
This movie wasn't all that well received when it first came out and in hindsight it isn't that easy to see why; maybe expectations were set too highly or something. It is a little slow-paced perhaps, but as others have pointed out it surely deserves a better score here than it has at present; most films with that ranking are stinking the place up something rotten and this film is certainly not in that category.
Well worth watching, especially if you like Jean Simmons; a solid 7/10 from me.
