Night Must Fall

Directed by Karel Reisz

Night Must Fall is a striking, black and white adaptation of Emlyn Williams’ unsettling play about a young killer who charms a widow and her daughter in their isolated home. A change of tone for the makers of Saturday Night, Sunday Morning, here Finney offers another more sinister take on the character of the working class charmer, one that is ultimately very far removed from Arthur Seaton.
