The 27 Year Old Stewart Granger
4 November 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

Now that Granger was getting regular work, he came to the attention of the British public in this film. His roles in the late 30's were thin off the ground compared with his older contemporary, James Mason, but leading man material was coming through in this film.
