High Fury
8 May 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

White Cradle Inn is a very strange picture. It does not have much of a plot.

A village in the Swiss Alps provides homes for displaced French children during the war. Magda has grown very attached with Roger, a poorly boy who has nothing to go back to France for but an orphanage.

However Magda's husband Rudolph who basically seems to sponge off her as she actually owns the inn while he messes about with women, dislikes the boy immensely. When Magda wants to adopt him, he knows the price she has to pay for his written consent.

I thought when Rudolph takes the boy out for a climb, he would end up killing him but the story works out differently. I am not sure I actually by the ending as Rudolph has no redeeming features.

Madeleine Carroll looks lovely, Michael Rennie unusually for him plays a vile character, but not sure why he was suddenly so nice at the end.
