A Clergyman’s Daughter was released in Britain in 1935. It tells the story of the eponymous clergyman’s daughter Dorothy Hare, who is driven by an overbearing father, overwork and sexual repression into a nervous and emotional collapse. After recovering her memory, she works for a short period as a teacher. When Dorothy faces her new class for the first time, she is suddenly nervous. It occurs to her she has ‘taken this teaching job under false pretences’.
