Starring: Sarah Miles and Kris Kristofferson
After his father dies, a disturbed young boy plots to take revenge on the new man in his mother’s life
This erotic mystery drama is based on the 1963 Japanese novel of the same name by Yukio Mishima and features a good shot of Dartmouth Railway station, the Great Western Railway station that was never served by trains. Located on the opposite bank of the River Dart to Kingswear it was used as a ferry terminal for the Dartmouth Passenger Ferry. The wooden structure had full booking office and waiting facilities and has never ceased trading as its original function, having provided a ferry service ever since it opened in 1889, though the main railway building is now a restaurant. Incidentally, the station master at Dartmouth was paid more than his colleague at Kingswear due to the importance of the traffic to HMS Britannia as it was known then, the Royal Naval College, Dartmouth. In addition to this there is a brief shot of a real railway station in the form of Kingswear, on the opposite bank of the Dart.
