Betsy Blair, already a founding producer with Garance Films, briefly set about acquiring the rights to the original novel with the intent on making it her directorial debut. She instead sacrificed this ambition for love of director Karl Reisz, marrying and starting a new life with him in London. She abandoned the idea of directing all together. See more »
Brilliant evocation of youth in a time of social disruption.
Brilliant evocation of youth in a time of social disruption. Angelica Huston's best work. Fascinating direction by John Huston. Based on an excellent novel. Well realized. Good depiction of medieval society. All in all, well worth seeing.
