Opens a season of major films new to television
starring Alan Bates, Susannah York, John Hurt
Charles Crossley, inmate at a small asylum, is keeping score at a cricket match between patients and some locals. He decides to tell his companion a story, "every word of which is true - although I may change the sequence of events." The tale is a mysterious one of menace, anger, and finally murder. Adapted from a story by Robert Graves, this is one of the most haunting and atmospheric of recent British films.
