Film: Victim

Groundbreaking British suspense film about Melville Farr, a closeted gay barrister (Dick Bogarde) who puts his marriage and his thriving career at risk when he takes on a ring of blackmailers targeting gay men.

Originally released in 1961, six years before homosexuality was decriminalised in the United Kingdom, the film was highly controversial, earned an "X" rating from the British censors (modern releases have been labelled "PG") and was for a time banned in the United States.
