There is a subplot involving gypsies in BLANCHE FURY (1948). The first time we see them, Valerie Hobson pays a visit because they have set up camp on her family's land. Later her lover Stewart Granger commits murder and he decides to pin the killing on the gypsies since the ignorant townsfolk would be quick to believe it.
