A grim, relentless story, considerably offbeat, gives some distinction to ed ge of Doom. It is played to the hilt by a good cast and directed with impact by Mark Robson.

The plot [from a novel by Leo Brady] has a single line and pursues it without deviation. It tells the story of a poverty-stricken boy, with a mother fixation after long years of caring for her, who tries to give her the funeral he believes she deserves. He receives unsympathetic treatment from the parish priest and, in a rage, kills the father with a crucifix.

At every turn, the oy is rebuffed in his efforts to set a fine funeral. That, and the weight of a guilty conscience, finally become so oppressive he admits his crime.
