Tern For The Worse
18 September 2012 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The Seven rating is for Ibsen and Dorothy Tutin rather than anyone or anything else. This TV adaptation featured the entire cast from the Saville Theatre production - the Saville theatre closed not long afterwards. Say no more. Dorothy Tutin was one of the finest actresses of her generation but she worked mainly in theatre which is the cinema's loss. At twenty-six she was almost a decade too old to play an innocent teenager but she gets away with it brilliantly. Emlyn Williams, usually reliable, is strangle ham-like here possibly because he shared so many scenes with Michael Gough. British cinema is particularly rich in wooden actors and whilst some of them - Keiron Moore, Derren Nesbit, Richard Todd, have their moment or even moments in the sun and then fade away discreetly others, like Gough and Richard Pascoe, hang around for years, doing whatever it is they do to keep on getting work. The great pity here is that Gough has what is more or less the pivotal role, a role that cries out for a Michael Redgrave but at least television viewers got to see a classic play if not a classic production and trivia buffs will relish Angela Baddely playing a wife and housekeeper rather than a cook.
