Elia Kazan: The Actor’s Director

The Arrangement

Kazan’s adaptation of his own novel is a part-serious, part-satirical account of a Greek-American’s mid-life crisis.

Dir Elia Kazan
With Kirk Douglas, Deborah Kerr, Faye Dunaway, Richard Boone
Certificate 15

Adapted from his own bestselling novel, Kazan’s most experimental film – complete with fragmented non-linear narrative, flashbacks, fantasy sequences and sudden shifts in tone – is also partly autobiographical. It chronicles, sometimes seriously, sometimes satirically, the chaotic mid-life crisis of a Greek-American advertising executive (Douglas) torn between his wife (Kerr) and mistress (Dunaway), while trying to come to terms with his feelings about his father.
