Two public school teachers clash over teaching methods and the love of a good woman in this absorbing Hugh Walpole adaptation.

Drama 1948 92 mins


A beautifully observed and absorbing adaptation of the popular Hugh Walpole novel about two public school teachers who clash over their differing teaching methods and the love of a good woman. David Farrar and Marius Goring get top marks as the teachers butting heads over the sultry charms of the school nurse - and when it's Greta Gynt, who can blame them? But it's Raymond Huntley who arguably goes to the top of the class as the odious headmaster.
