This tail of treachery put both the Gainsborough melodrama and actor James Mason on the map. The star-to-be plays Lord Rohan, a cruel nobleman who marries the naive and sweet-natured Clarissa for the sole purpose of producing an heir; meanwhile, Clarissa's conniving best friend, Hesther, plots against her for her own nefarious ends.

James Mason plays a 17th century aristocrat who chooses a beautiful young girl to be his wife so that she can give him an heir. Once she produces the son, he really doesn’t need her so much any more. Stewart Granger arrives on the scene and tries to heroically rescue her, but fails in this endevour. Perhaps Granger’s descendant, a few hundred years later will have better success. Maybe the title uses the word grey because James Mason’s character has just one or two good qualities among his numerous horrible character traits, as shown by his last action in the film.
