Compulsion or The House Behind


Sid Silver learns about a young girl named Anne Frank and her extraordinary diary, and makes it his mission to ensure her tale is heard. But once publishers and producers get involved, it becomes “a very valuable product”—and his good intentions prove to be his undoing. The character of Sid Silver represents journalist and playwright Meyer Levin whose original adaptation of Anne Frank's diary was rejected in favor of an adaptation by other authors.
