Portrait of Clare is a 1950 British drama film directed by Lance Comfort and starring Margaret Johnston, Richard Todd, Robin Bailey and Ronald Howard.[2]


As told in flashback to her granddaughter: the three marriages of Clare Hingston. These are: a young man who is killed, a priggish lawyer and a sympathetic barrister.


Critical reception[edit]

TV Guide wrote, "the story suffers from a slack pace, though Johnston adds a lot of charm and sincerity to her role."[3]
