Full movie description "The Wednesday Play 3 Clear Sundays":A dull witted young labourer from a criminal family is sent to gaol for a minor crime, leaving his pregnant girlfriend unmarried. But while there he is talked into attacking a guard, who later dies, so he's then sentenced to hang for his crime, despite a protest and newspaper campaign for leniency.
Reviews of the The Wednesday Play 3 Clear SundaysThe anti-hero of this story, Danny, is a smiling, low IQ young man designed to pull sympathy. He's tricked (rather incredibly) into attacking a warder in the prison he's serving in. The attack becomes a murder, but since it was intended only to hurt or maim, we're asked to take that as less deserving of a murder's proscribed punishment.That he's not too bright is supposed to mitigate things. We're shown one of his follow prisoners on death row who's obviously quite mad.Maybe Danny is innocent by way of insanity? On the day of his sentence, guards ambush him in his cell to violently bind him up to take him to the gallows-then we cut to quotations from official papers describing just how terrible hangings can be.
Danny is a pretty obvious straw man- based on Timothy Evans, the illiterate falsely convicted and hanged murderer in 1950. We are never supposed to consider or sympathise with a murder victim. Is it any less horrific to have one's head opened with an iron pipe than to have a rope stretch one's neck? This sort of clouding the issue paid off, as really "3 Clear Sundays" is a post-mortem on the death penalty, this transmission coming eight months after the last hanging in Britain.
