Porterhouse Blue Part 1 (1987)

Film details


At Porterhouse, a Cambridge University college steeped in tradition, confusion is created by the untimely death of the Master without naming a successor and a power struggle begins. However, the appointee is not one of the existing staff but an outsider, with a strident wife and liberal attitudes at variance with the all-male traditional attitudes and activities endemic in Porterhouse, particularly encapsulated in the Porter, Skullion.
