Synopsis

In 1961 homosexual relations were still outlawed in Britain, leaving gay men and women open to not only discrimination, but also imprisonment. Made in that year, Victim is both a plea for tolerance and a fast-paced thriller. Former matinee idol Dirk Bogarde daringly took on the lead role of Melville Farr, a homosexual lawyer who fights back against a blackmailer targeting gay men in London. Sylvia Syms is also excellent as Farr's conflicted but supportive wife.
