I notice that this evening BBC 4 (the only channel, as far as I’m concerned) is showing An Englishman Abroad. This is Bennett’s film about Coral Browne meeting Guy Burgess in Moscow. I remember enjoying it very much when it was first shown, although I don’t share Bennett’s sympathy for traitors. I’m rather looking forward to seeing it again.
Coral Browne and Alan Bates in An Englishman Abroad. 1983? I can’t believe it was so long ago.
