CGiii Comment

Rather daring for its time.

Perhaps a little subversive...and, starring Cliff Richard.

Ingredients for a treat...no.

The writing is terrible - a sign of the times - it's so bloody polite.

It will remain a curiosity simply because it was Cliff's first film in a rather controversial project.

The(ir) Blurb...

Howard Phillips, a vicar who's new in the town of Bellington, wants to reach out to youth. The previous vicar's daughter, Hester Peters, who fears being a spinster, wants to be his wife. He tells her he's not interested. When he confronts a tough kid about something the youth has done, the lad sets out to frame the vicar. Hester, who's walked in on the confrontation, backs the youth's story. The town sides with her and the lad, turning against Phillips. He has a crisis of faith. What options does he have; can no one help him, his reputation, or his calling?
