Edge of Doom is a 1950 drama directed by Mark Robinson. The film centers around Martin Lynn (Farley Granger), a poor yet hardworking young man. A loving son, Martin has taken care of his ailing mother, an active and devout Catholic, for the past few years. When Martin turns to his mother's parish, Saint Stephens, for financial help with her burial after her death, his pleas for assistance are rebuffed by Father Kirkman (Harold Vermilyea). Disillusioned with the church and angered by the refusal to help, Martin murders him in a fit of rage and continues on his quest to fund his mother's Christian burial. When another priest, Father Thomas Roth (Dana Andrews) discovers that his friend has been murdered, he vows to track down the killer. Motivated by compassion rather than malice, Father Roth seeks to bring Martin to a place of repentance, for the sake of his soul and the memory of his mother. Can Martin's soul be saved, or will he continue to teeter on the Edge of Doom?moreless
