Like watching a radio play

"Home at Seven" is the one and only film that Ralph Richardson directed. I would hazard a guess that at the last moment the original director was unavailable and someone suggested to Sir Ralph that he try his hand.

You would be hard pressed to find a cinematically more bland, not to mention boring film that this. There is no use at all of lighting or camera movement to enhance to plot, (which certainly could do with some enhancement). It's tantamount to watching a radio play.

True there are three top actors at work in Richardson, Margaret Leighton and Jack Hawkins. But it's all so pedestrian that even they hardly make this one to look out for.
