Four Sided Triangle (1953)

In a quiet English village three best friends, two boys and one girl, play together, unaware of what the future has in store for them. As adults, the two men create something that could change the world, but the destructive feelings of the emotional half of the duo jeopardises everything.
After viewing FST it's easy to see why Terence Fisher was given the Frankenstein gig when it came up. He successfully keeps the human element central in a story of science enabling a misguided conscience to sate its desires. The owner of the desires in question doesn't go to the same level of depravity that the Baron did, but he harbours an obsession that's surely equal in measure, one that Fisher pays foremost attention to.
