Mr. Perrin and Mr. Traill is a 1948 British drama film directed by Lawrence Huntington and starring David Farrar, Edward Chapman and Raymond Huntley. It is based on the 1911 novel of the same title by Hugh Walpole. Walpole based the novel on his experiences as a teacher at Epsom College, but shifted the school's setting to the Cornish coast.


An elderly schoolmaster is upset when a new, younger teacher arrives at the school proving extremely popular with the students. Their rivalry is eventually driven to a tragic conclusion.[1]
