When is this movie set?


I saw the last third of this on TCM tonight, so I missed most indicators of at what time is this movie is set. I remember that during it, forensic fingerprinting is treated as new and possibly unreliable, but the science had been in development from the late 19th century and finally began use sometime in America around 1902. Does anyone have anymor einfo? Thanks!

1903 or 1907 I think.

Mrs. Prentiss's husband suggests she read the newspaper, as there was just an axe murder that took place in Fall River, which was the Lizzie Borden case that happened in 1892. However, that was August and this appeared to be the fall, judging by the football game and bonfire.

Am I anywhere near the imaginary cliff?
