Home At Seven (Empire DVD Review)

HomeAtSevenSquareRalph Richardson made his sole venture behind the camera with this talky adaptation of R.C. Sheriff’s 1950 chamber piece, in which he reprised his popular West End stage role as a bank clerk who suffers a bout of temporary amnesia, and subsequently finds himself embroiled in a murder mystery. It’s moderately suspenseful stuff, with sterling support from Jack Hawkins and Margaret Leighton, but it’s all played with such jollity that the jeopardy never feels real.
