The Tall Headlines is a 1952 British film directed by Terence Young and starring André Morell, Flora Robson, Michael Denison, Peter Burton, Sid James and Dennis Price. In the USA the film was retitled The Frightened Bride. A middle-class family suffer agonies when their eldest son is hanged for murder.
Allmovie called it a "grim British drama," but approved of "An excellent all-character-actor cast includes Flora Robson and Andre Morrell as the grieving parents, Michael Denison as the brother and Mai Zetterling as the initial murder victim."; whereas TV Guide wrote, "Decent performances by some well-known British actors and actresses are wasted on this unbelievable story."
