Melodramatic pulp
25 May 2019 | by ts-folkeSee all my reviews

A silly tale starring the brilliant noir tough, Robert Ryan. Ryan is miscast as a no-nonsense realist teaching young privledged boys truths regarding distant parents and why they are placed in the private school. Opposite a prim Greer Garson, Ryan buries his throbbing passions for her behind a mask of phony disinterest. It takes his discovery of fake letters that Garson penned to a diminutive boy for Ryan to unleash his libido and confess his loin surgings to her. In the end his passions save the boys from a departing Garson but leaves a confused widower and his loner son bewildered and lost.
