Russell-Tavernan stars in this most obscure version of French playwright Alexandre Bisson's melodramatic tearjerker, filmed many times before and since as MADAME X. It is the story of a married woman whose extramarital affair turns sour and ends in her lover's accidental death. Her

marriage dissolves, her life ends up in the gutter, she is blackmailed, she shoots her blackmailer, she winds up in court to be defended by her son (although she doesn't know it is him), and finally she dies. There are enough earth-shattering twists to fill a year's worth of soap operas. For the

curious, check out the 1966 version of MADAME X with Lana Turner in the lead.
