A piece of cinematic history by Asquith - a priviledged, closeted alcoholic.
Technically, it's rather impressive - many a film student could learn a great deal from this.
But...in truth, it's hackneyed melodrama.
Flashback story of an escape from the lonely, high-security Dartmoor Prison. A jealous barber's assistant is enraged by the attentions that his manicurist girlfriend pays to a customer. He threatens the customer with an open razor and lands in jail.
