From Guy Hamilton, the acclaimed director of The Devil’s Disciple, Goldfinger, Funeral in Berlin, Force 10 from Navarone, The Mirror Crack’d and Evil Under the Sun, comes this classic murder mystery starring the great Alastair Sim (A Christmas Carol) as the enigmatic Inspector Poole. The Birling family are rich, pampered and complacent. It is 1912 and the shadow of the impending war has yet to fall across their lives. As they sit down for dinner one night, celebrating the engagement of the eldest child, Sheila (Eileen Moore), to prosperous businessman Gerald (Brian Worth), a knock at the door announces the arrival of a visitor who changes their lives forever. Based on the classic stage play by J.B. Priestley (The Old Dark House), An Inspector Calls is a compelling critique of the moral hypocrisy of upper-crust English society, beautifully photographed by Edward Scaife (The Captain’s Paradise) and co-starring actor/writer/producer/director Bryan Forbes (Quatermass 2).
