Details

Creator of some of Gainsborough Pictures' best-known melodramas, Leslie Arliss was well chosen to helm this atmospheric thriller, made in 1947. Boasting cinematography by Oscar winner Georges Perinal and an early film role for Kieron Moore, A Man About the House is adapted from the novel of the same name by noted English writer and composer Francis Brett Young. It is featured here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Two English sisters, Ellen and Agnes Isit, inherit a Neopolitan villa from their uncle and move to Italy in order to sell the property. Once there, they fall under the spell of the villa's handsome and charismatic caretaker, Salvatore. The villa was once owned by Salvatore's family, and he longs to regain ownership of the property; when he marries Agnes, his dream moves a step closer. But Agnes begins to suffer from a debilitating illness, and her sister's suspicions are aroused.
