This thought-provoking 1961 classic stars Dirk Bogarde as a prominent lawyer who risks his career to hunt down a blackmailer. Police on the trail of Jack Barrett, a blackmail victim who has stolen a large sum of money from his employer. Barrett is desperately trying to contact married barrister Melville Farr (Bogarde) but is arrested before he can reach him and commits suicide in his cell. Farr realises someone must know about their homosexual relationship - still illegal at that time - and Barrett was attempting to save his reputation. With his loyal companion dead and wife Laura (Sylvia Syms) demanding answers, he must think and act fast. Also starring Dennis Price.
