Desperate to see again
18 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's been decades since I saw this on British television, and I am desperate to see it again! It was so mysterious and well done. And Alan Badel is a terrific actor, with such a silky-smooth, mesmerizing voice. One can't get enough of him, really. There were so many atmospheric "small" films, made in Britain in the 1950s, and still little-known in the States. The respected tradition of regional and repertory theatres doubtless added greatly to the quality of such films, wherein "stars" as such are not strictly necessary to the end result. (Pity that American films lend themselves more to the star system.) If anyone knows how to get a copy, please let us who cruise IMDb know. Thanks.
