At the height of his fame (his plays being much celebrated in London in the 1890's), Oscar Wilde (Peter Finch) angers the Lord Queensbury (Lionel Jeffries) by having what is whispered and gossiped as a romantic relationship with Queensbury's son (James Fraser), twenty years Wilde's junior. When Queensbury slanders Wilde, the arrogant artist decides to take the matter to court, where Sir Edward Carson (James Mason) presides, and brings about his own downfall. Golden Globe winner for best picture.
