Summary This tale of treachery put both the Gainsborough melodrama and actor James Mason on the map. The star-to-be plays Lord Rohan, a cruel nobleman who marries the naive and sweet-natured Clarissa for the sole purpose of producing an heir; meanwhile, Clarissa's conniving best friend, Hesther, plots against her for her own nefarious ends. Set in England in the early 19th century.
