Queer Film Club’s review published on Letterboxd:
Queer Film Club Feature Selection, September 2021
This late noir-era crime film was the first English-language feature to contain the word 'homosexual.' It follows a London barrister who, when faced with accusations of sodomy, then-illegal, fights the British legal system and his blackmailers.
Basil Dearden, 1961, U.K.
