Without being a masterpiece, this 1961 British drama about a former child molester (Stuart Whitman) trying to make a fresh start after a prison term is an example of intelligent and compassionate liberal filmmaking that seems especially rare nowadays—which suggests that it warrants a second look. Whitman received an Oscar nomination for his performance, but the usually overwrought Rod Steiger may be even better in the low-key part of the hero’s sympathetic psychiatrist; Maria Schell is effective as well. Thoughtfully written by Sidney Buchman and Stanley Mann, and not at all badly directed by Guy Green.
