Hangover Square (1945) London, early 20th century. George Harvey Bone is a very promising musician, who is working on a concerto that is likely to fulfill that promise. Sir Henry Chapman, a distinguished conductor, wants to perform it at one of his soirees, with Bone at the piano. Chapman's daughter, Barbara, is thrilled; she's in love with George and believes in his talent. The black cloud over George's life is his propensity to having "black little moods." He visits Dr. Allan Middleton of Scotland yard. Middleton is an expert on the mind. The doctor's suggestion that George get out and mingle with ordinary people may be good in theory. But it leads George to meet Netta Longdon, a duplicitous music hall dancer. Netta leads George into a torment that sends him into ever blacker and blacker moods, where he does things he can't remember. And wouldn't want to.
