The story of a wealthy London toff (James Fox) and his intriguing new manservant (Dirk Bogarde).
Dir Joseph Losey
With Dirk Bogarde, James Fox, Sarah Miles, Wendy Craig
Adapted from Robin Maugham’s novel, Losey’s first collaboration with Harold Pinter centres on the power shifts in the increasingly fraught relationship between an indolent, wealthy London toff (Fox), his new manservant (Bogarde) and the women in their respective lives. As shot by Douglas Slocombe, the lavish mansion that is the main arena of their conflict says much about class, connivance, complicity and control.
