Working Class Heroes

Night Watch

Elizabeth Taylor and Billie Whitelaw star in this suspenseful thriller.

UK-USA 1973
Dir Brian G Hutton
With Elizabeth Taylor, Laurence Harvey, Billie Whitelaw
Certificate 15

While some of the lure of suspense thriller Night Watch lies in the presence of Elizabeth Taylor, just as vital is co-star Billie Whitelaw – the vastly skilled actor from working-class Bradford who enjoyed a long professional relationship with Samuel Beckett. Taylor is a troubled London widow, convinced her new husband is having an affair. Whitelaw plays the best friend she also suspects, flawless in this ripe Hitchcockian chiller.
