VICTIM is a British drama, from 1961, in which a lawyer takes on blackmailers who have been targeting gay men.

Language

Mild bad language includes uses of 'bitch', 'bloody', 'bastard', 'God', 'damn' and 'hell'.

Sex

There are mild and undetailed references to sexual activity, such as whether a man is attracted to other men as a "boy would be to a girl" and a man admitting "I wanted him".

Discriminatory comments are made about gay people, including sight of the word 'queer' scrawled on a garage. However, the film is very strongly against such discrimination. There is a verbal reference to a man having hanged himself in prison. As a result of threats from blackmailers a man collapses and is taken away in an ambulance.
