Well worth watching
I've just found this again on a video tape and have really enjoyed it. OK it's slightly dated (especially in some of Jenny Agutter's dresses) and it's firmly in the genre of the British 'kitchen-sink' dramas of the early 1960s, but it's well worth watching.
Jenny Agutter does a tour-de-force with some brilliant and totally believable acting (the occasional and far too brief nude scenes are a bonus). Sam Waterston is equally believable as charming rogue William who neglects to tell his various conquests of his various other conquests and wives.
The twist at the very end throws a different light on much of what has gone before (and you have to watch very closely to see it!).
This should be re-released on DVD so that everyone has a chance to give it a second look. It stands the test of time well.
