Watched this last night on BBC4, one of my favourite films, seen it many times. Made 75 years ago, and oh, how times have changed!
a) What did Laura see in the Trevor Howard character? I thought he was a bit sleazy, always got the impression he had cheated before, and poor Laura was the latest conquest.
b) Laura’s weekly shopping trip. Different ideas of shopping in those days, she just had a sweet little wicker basket, which seemed to contain nothing more than a solitary library book, then lunch and a trip to the cinema.
c) Who collected the children from school, gave them their tea and put them to bed, all before Laura arrived home from her shopping trip? Probably the faithful Ethel, who also cooked the meals .
d) And what occupation did the faithful Fred have, to keep his wife in the lap of luxury? My guess would be solicitor, bank manager, accountant.
Nit picking aside, love the film though.
