Hammer essayed a depiction of real-world anxiety with this adaptation of American writer Roger Garis’ play The Pony Cart. In a small town, new school principal Patrick Allen and wife Gwen Watford seek justice after young daughter Janina Faye identifies wealthy Felix Aylmer as a sexual predator, but the family is further put through the wringer by the police and at the trial. With a score by Elisabeth Lutyens.
