A pretty young girl, Dulcima Gaskain (Carol White), takes pity on him and decides to help him by cleaning the place. She is happy to be earning money, and he is happy because she is there. Despite being a miserable old bastard, Mr. Parker finds himself falling for Dulcima, and asks her to move in with him, to save her the walk from her house to his farm every day. She does, and is happy with her work. She, however, falls for a gamekeeper (Stuart Wilson) from the nearby estate, and they start to meet in secret because of Mr. Parker's increasing jealousy. One day, while he is at the market, she discovers a whole load of money hidden in an upstairs room, and this changes the relationship between Mr. Parker and Dulcima. She becomes more friendly towards the farmer, now knowing of his wealth, and Mr. Parker decides that he wants her for his bride. Dulcima, however, still sees the gamekeeper, and eventually, Mr. Parker finds out. Written by Richard Jeffreys See less
