SENSATION is a black and white British crime drama, from 1936, about a journalist investigating the murder of a young woman in a small rural village.

Language

There are uses of very mild bad language, including 'hell' and 'damned'.

Sex

There are some very mild sex references as police ask whether a woman was 'respectable' and are told that she 'gallivanted'. There's some very mild innuendo as a man is told that a woman will help him find a bed. There's also a reference to an unmarried woman telling her married boyfriend that she's going to have a baby.

Violence

There are some verbal references to the murdered woman, including a man saying that when he found her body it "wasn't half in a shocking state".

Other issues include some scenes in which various characters smoke cigarettes and cigars.
