Interesting film and play. Playwright Osborne did not conceive the character of the knight (serving as part chorus, part psychological alter-ego). The idea came from Julian Glover (he plays the part in the stage version as well). And that character is fascinating..Good performances from all the characters, especially Stacy Keach. Cinematographer Freddie Young provides interesting camera angles in crucial scenes.
