Homosexual subtext?!?

Where?!?

James Mason is a trifle camp...but, interpretting it as a latent desire for Alan Ladd is just plain nonsense. He's a psychopath...not a lovelorn homo!

When will this 'queering' everything stop?!?

In 1787 prisoners from London's Newgate Gaol are to be shipped to New South Wales. Hugh Tallant is an American medical student whom, we learn at sea, was falsely imprisoned.
