Carol Reed's camera tricks can't quite cover the lack of a meaningful point of view in this 1948 British production about a boy (Bobby Henrey) who is shattered to discover that his hero, the family butler (Ralph Richardson), is cheating on his shrewish wife and may even have murdered her. Graham Greene's screenplay centers on the pivotal moment when a child first discovers sin, but the boy's perspective is neglected in favor of facile suspense structures and a thuddingly conventional whodunit finale. With Michele Morgan, glowing as a motherly mistress.
