Elizabeth Taylor and Billie Whitelaw star in this suspenseful thriller.
Dir Brian G Hutton
With Elizabeth Taylor, Laurence Harvey, Billie Whitelaw
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.
