The Children's Hour - 1961 **1/2

This was a very depressing film. Hepburn and MacLaine play two schoolteachers who come under devastating scrutiny after a pupil starts up a rumour that the pair are lovers. This results in a complete loss of their livelihood and their pupils being taken away.
It is a bleak story of what happens when rumours are given fuel and the sorts of things slander can do to a person. Very sad. And based on a true story.
