For Them That Trespass

Time Out says

For Them That Trespass, scripted by J Lee Thompson of all people, is notable for the way Cavalcanti transforms his story, of how Richard Todd, wrongly imprisoned for murder, clears his name, into a bleak account of guilt. Shot so as to bring out both the poetry and the squalor of working class life, it was one of the postwar British films that presaged the arrival of Room at the Top and Saturday Night and Sunday Morning a decade later.
