After viewing the movie version with Meryl Streep, Roseanne and co.,(which I found to be somewhat mediocre), it came as a complete shock, when I later viewed this earlier edition, directed by Philip Saville.
It is one of the best movies, which I have ever seen, (and still remains so).
I can only put down the difference, to the screen-play which was admirablely written by Ted Whitehead.
