Episode 011 of the new podcast from the Stinking Pause stable of podcasts featuring Scott and Tony. Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British films....with the occasional hint of professionalism.
In this episode, listener Gavin has selected Sleuth from 1972.
Based on the renowned play by Anthony Shaffer, this mystery finds Andrew Wyke (Laurence Olivier), a wealthy author of detective novels and game aficionado, facing off against his wife's lover, Milo Tindle (Michael Caine), a middle-class hair salon-owner. When Wyke, who is seemingly content to split from his wife strikes an unusual deal with Tindle, it sets into motion a fierce game of one-upmanship between the two, with the stakes growing increasingly higher.
