The Farmer's Wife
24 October 2020 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

A thoughtful drama (with as usual a restless score by Percival Mackay) dating from 'Billy' Hartnell's brief tenure as a leading man, albeit an unconventional one.

In this adaptation of the novel by A.G.Street set against an improbably picturesque and sanitised rural backdrop, both he and fellow farmer Walter Fitzgerald are not surprisingly childless while remaining oblivious that their wives don't share their fascination with muckspreading and yields. Tragedy ensues.
