Rattle of a Simple Man (DVD)


Muriel Box's bittersweet character study

- +

Rattle of a Simple Man (1964), directed by Muriel Box, follows Percy Winthram (Harry H Corbett), a shy, naïve 39-year-old who is in London with his friends for the Cup Final.  When he meets beautiful hostess Cyrenne (Diane Cilento) in a Soho strip club and accepts a bet, a night of lust seems to be on the cards, but back at her apartment Percy’s innocence and vulnerability become all too evident.  

A bittersweet study of two characters from very different walks of life, the film is imbued with endearing and heartwarming humour and some stark home truths.
