This 1969 TV movie starred Sean Connery, Michael Caine, Paul Scofield, and a female British actress whose name I do not remember. Connery was the father of the young woman and he was a master carpenter. Paul Scofield was a prominent businessman (and perhaps a minor government minister--very distinguished). Michael Caine was a cockney office worker who was somewhat bumbling, awkward, unskilled and appeared to lack a promising future. The movie centers around the young woman and her relationship and interaction with each of the males in the story. Broadcast on public television before VCRs, I stayed home to watch the repeat broadcast two weeks after the original. Each of the males was perfectly cast because their offscreen persona are, in my opinion, very much like the characters they played.
I would love to get my hands on a copy of this TV movie and have searched the New York Public Library and the Internet for quite some time. It would be well worth your while to help me find it so you, too, can enjoy this wonderful story.
