The delicate subject (for 1962) of homosexuality is treated well in in this screen version of Philip King's play "Serious Charge." Quayle, a young, good-looking vicar, arrives in a small town full of juvenile delinquents and gossips. A malicious young punk, wanting to ruin the vicar, claims
to be the victim of a homosexual attack by Quayle. Churchill, the attractive daughter of the previous vicar, is in love with Quayle, but accidentally becomes the star witness against him. He is literally run out of town. A dramatic account of one man's battle against slander, the film effectively
portrays the destructiveness of prejudice. Songs include "No Turning Back," "Living Doll," "Mad" (Lionel Bart; sung by Cliff Richard), "Chinchilla" (Randy Starr, Dick Wolf).
