Welcome to Season Two! Basil Deardon’s Victim pits a closeted barrister against a blackmailer. This was the first English language film to use the word “homosexual.” It bravely denounced the UK’s anti-gay laws. Today it remains a crackling noir with a heroic gay leading man, the likes we rarely see in cinema.
This episode contains plot spoilers and a brief discussion of a characters’ suicide.
Musical theme from PodSummit and Creative Commons Zero.
