Andrew Wyke is a famous and successful author of detective novels. Milo Tindle comes to him with a strange request, that Mr Wyke divorce his wife so that Tindle can marry her. Mr Wyke is not particularly perturbed by this, he and his wife have drifted apart, and he is having an affair with another woman anyway, but uses the meeting and Mr Tindle's request as a chance to play a game, a game with potentially deadly consequences.Written by
Michael Caine tells in his biography that Laurence Olivier could not, at first, remember his lines - he, a great stage actor who could initially remember three hours of lines in a play. He could not because of pills he started taking to calm him down after he learned that a theater of his, which he put much money and many efforts in for many years, had to be closed down. But Olivier eventually stopped taking those pills and his memory issues stopped. See more »

... very entertaining nonetheless but you can't help feeling however, that to get away with the intent, you need a hard of hearing audience with poor vision, while accepting that gullibility and greed are sufficient to open the gambit. Michael Cane plays Michael Cane, no matter how you dress him up but it's Olivier who steels the show and by a country house pile.
