"Serious Charge (1959) ... Anthony Quayle ... VCI Ent. (2009
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 06/15/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"VCI Entertainment presents "SERIOUS CHARGE" (May 1959) (95 mins/B&W) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) --- Some outstanding performances with a great cast, as an unmarried vicar in a new parish Reverend Howard Phillips (Anthony Quayle) accuses a local 19 year old of being partially responsible for the death of a teenage girl --- In defiance, the young man claims the vicar molested him --- Out of spite, his story is backed up by a local woman Hester Peters (Sarah Churchill) still furious that the vicar rejected her advances --- Unfortunately for the Reverend, Hester Peters is a highly respected member of the community - her father is the previous clergyman --- A film ahead of its time, with some hard to watch scenes that will keep you glued to the small screen till the very end.

Terence Young - Director
Mickey Delamar - Screenwriter
Guy Elmes - Screenwriter
Philip King - Author from the play "Serious Charge"
