Yvonne Mitchell pulls out all the acting stops in this social realist drama from the pen of Ted Willis. Willis was a prolific TV writer and this is where this was first produced. He created a huge number of successful British shows and his reputation was based on his realistic portrayals of contemporary life. Anthony Quayle wants to leave his slatternly wife for beautiful younger lover Georgie (Sylvia Syms) but Amy (Mitchell) won’t let him go without a fight. A product of its time but the performances are superb and any film helmed by director J. Lee Thompson is always worth a watch. I was very young when I first watched this and I now realise that most wives turn into Mitchell but they don’t know it!
