After relishing the nuances of the master-servant relationship in The Hireling, the super-smooth Alan Bridges finds himself landed with an impossible project. The dire script wrings every possible cliché out of the situation (mother and daughter while winter away in their deserted seaside hotel, until they're interrupted by the arrival of an intruder from the past). The biggest mystery is why this stagey stuff (all brooding desire, jealousy and intimations of incest) was filmed at all, and why a cast of this calibre should have bothered.
