Something of a rarity and a definite must-see for Rattigan buffs. It was written originally as a third one-act play to be presented with Harliquinade and The Browning Version in 1948 but when he was unable to interest John Gielgud in any of the three (who said actors have to be smart) Rattigan dropped it and more or less forgot about it until he was approached for a short piece for television. We don't need to look far for signs of Rattigan either in the characters, plotting or dialogue but it is far from his best. Roland Culver steals the whole thing with one bon mot behind his back whilst Margaret Leighton exudes Class as she always did but Christopher Gable in the lead is well out of his comfort zone. Nevertheless it makes fascinating viewing for the Rattigan admirers.
