To mark the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales, we’re exploring our collective past through a season of exceptional British movies.

Victim
Director: Basil Dearden. Starring: Dirk Bogarde, Sylvia Syms. UK 1961. 100 mins.

Intro from Richard Dyer — : A professor at King's College London and St. Andrew's University, Richard Dyer was a pioneer in the development of LGBT criticism and is author of Now You See It: Studies in Lesbian and Gay Film and The Culture of Queers.

Early ’60s London, and gay men across the city are being blackmailed, threatening exposure at a time when consensual homosexual acts could still result in imprisonment. Basil Dearden’s classic thriller stars Dirk Bogarde in his most daring role, as a gay lawyer fighting back against the blackmailers who dare to target him.
