An Inspector Calls

Post by Bruce R on Tue Aug 15, 2017 3:11 pm

Having enjoyed Alastair Sim in LAUGHTER IN PARADISE I noticed he starred in the 1954 Brit noir AN INSPECTOR CALLS with Jane Wenham, Brian Worth, Eileen Moore, Olga Lindo and Bryan Forbes.

This is a delightful and entertaining film. Keaney gives it a 3.0 and it's 7.5 on IMDb.

The comfortable complacency of the British Birling family is upset when Inspector Poole (Alastair Sim) comes calling. An impoverished young working girl named Eva Smith (Jane Wenham) has committed suicide, and Poole hopes that the Birlings will help him find out why. As the evening progresses, a series of flashbacks reveal that each member of the Birling family has in some small way been responsible for Eva's demise.

A "I didn't see that coming"-ending adds a mystical, thought-provoking touch to the film.
