Storyline

Told in flashback, this movie opens with a scene of a seventeen-year-old boy, Francis Andrews, being brutally lashed during a police interrogation, in which the boy thinks back to what placed him in this situation. He betrayed the crew of a smuggling ship whose master, Richard Carlyon, was also his guardian. Some of the smugglers are caught, but Carlyon escapes, and then begins his search for Andrews. Carlyon was quite fond of the boy, but knew him for a coward. Andrews seeks refuge in in the cottage of a girl named Elizabeth, who urges him to give testimony against the smugglers in court. He summons his courage and does so. Carlyon, catching up with Andrews, recognizes this as an act of courage, and does not take revenge on him. Carlyon is eventually caught, but despite the police torture, Andrews does not identify him, and he goes free, while his guardian faces the gallows.

How Could He Resist The Charms Of Jean Kent
28 June 2014 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This film is virtually unknown.I can never recall it showing on TV in the UK and it is not available on DVD>It is an interesting film with an exceptional cast.However most of the film seems to consist of Richard Attenborough being flogged,tortured or threatened.not surprisingly his most oft used line is "I hate him".Furthermore when offered the ample charms of Jean Kent he resists her and flees back to Joan Greenwood who is afflicted with an awful French accent.There is some very good technicolour camera-work.However it is clear that this film must have got lost in the rush of costume dramas coming out of Gainsborough Studios.It doesn't deserve to be forgotten.
