In 1993, director Mike Figgis
was dressing for a dinner party at the home of Ridley Scott
's producer and happened to switch on this version of the Terence Rattigan
play. He became so riveted that he arrived late to the party. He explained to his host the reason for his tardiness. His host said that, coincidentally, he himself had recently optioned the remake rights and was looking for a director. Figgis went on to direct the 1994 remake (The Browning Version
(1994)) with Albert Finney

You see, my dear Hunter, she is really quite as much to be pitied as I am. We are both of us interesting subjects for your microscope, hmmm! Oh, both of us needing something from the other to make life supportable for us... and neither of us able to give it. Two kinds of love, hers and mine. Worlds apart! Oh, I know now, but back when I married her, I did not think that they were incompatible, nor, I suppose, did she.
