I Just Watched... in General Discussions Posted June 2, 2019 3 hours ago, LawrenceA said: Night Must Fall (1964) - 7/10 British adaptation of the Emlyn Williams play, directed by Karel Reisz. Albert Finney stars as a homicidal and unbalanced young man who takes work in the home of wealthy, wheelchair-bound widow Mona Washbourne. He begins affairs with both the maid (Sheila Hancock) and the widow's daughter (Susan Hampshire). Also featuring Michael Medwin, Joe Gladwin, and Martin Wyldeck. This is a much drearier version of the material than the 1937 Robert Montgomery take on it. The film has that British "kitchen sink" gloom, and Finney plays the character as obviously unhinged, with little charm but enough boyish appeal in his grin and clean looks to sway the lonely women in the tale. Source: TCM Albert Finney is so clearly unhinged that I don' t think that he could have fooled anyone. The horrific murders at the beginning and end - are horrific.
