Dir: Joseph Losey
Starring: Dirk Bogarde and Sarah Miles
An upper-class aristocrat hires a servant who turns out to have his own hidden agenda
This tightly-constructed psychological drama includes a scene with Dirk Bogarde on the platforms of London St Pancras station as a Class 45 ‘Peak’ arrives with an express from the Midlands. There is also an unusual low-angle shot of the station frontage. The film was adapted from the eponymous 1948 novelette by Robin Maugham.
