Carrington VC

Dorothy and Campbell Christie's stage success was the sort of trusted material to which British stalwart Asquith often turned his skills, and here the result's a typically well-acted courtroom drama lacking only the last ounce of sheer cinematic flair. Niven proves a little more involved than usual as a hard-up army officer, egged on by his unscrupulous wife Leighton, who determines to take the money owed him from the battery safe, then finds himself before a court-martial when his superiors refuse to speak up for him.
