Movie Diary 9/18/2018

Mr. Perrin and Mr. Traill (Laurence Huntington, 1948). Much of it plays as one of those English school sagas, this one about a young teacher (David Farrar) arriving at a hidebound estalishment where Marius Goring is the fussiest of the instructors. Greta Gynt is the woman they both love, Raymond Huntley is the monstrous dean. Everything fairly normal, with some handsome Erwin Hillier photography along the way, and then the movie reaches a climax that really takes a strange Hitchcockian leap. Peculiar stuff.
