Classic Early Mirren, 20 October 1999

Helen Mirren always was the great actress she is acknowledged to be, and this TV drama, from the early-70's British "Thriller" anthology series, proves just that. This gem from the pen of Brian Clemens is made all the more effective by the casting of Mirren and her then RSC co-star Michael Jayston as the thin-lipped villain. The unexpected ending will cause the jaw to drop so far that surgery may be required. This obscure 1974 TV production was released briefly on video in Britain in the early 90's, much to the delight of people like myself who vividly remember seeing the original pre-video broadcast and who, almost 25 years later, still recall jaw-dropping bewilderment (if not jaw surgery) at the climax. An absolute must see, if you can get your hands on the video.
