Cast: Deborah Kerr, Michael Redgrave, Peter Wyngarde

A brilliant exercise in psychological horror, Jack Clayton’s celebrated adaptation of Henry James’s The Turn of the Screw (1898) tells of an impressionable and repressed governess, Miss Giddens (Deborah Kerr in the performance of her career), who agrees to tutor two orphaned children, Miles and Flora. It is now widely considered to be one of the greatest of all cinematic tales of terror, and continues to inspire today’s ‘haunted house’ movies.
