Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.
In the latest episode, Scott is joined by Steven to chat about governesses, ghosts and all manner of ghastly goings-on
Join us we take a look at the classic horror movie from 1961, The Innocents, starring Deborah Kerr
In Victorian England, the uncle (Sir Michael Redgrave) of orphaned niece Flora (Pamela Franklin) and nephew Miles (Martin Stephens) hires Miss Giddens (Deborah Kerr) as governess to raise the children at his estate with total independence and authority. Soon after her arrival, Miss Giddens comes to believe that the spirits of the former governess Miss Jessel (Clytie Jessop) and valet Peter Quint (Peter Wyngarde) are possessing the children. Miss Giddens decides to help the children to face and exorcise the spirits.
“Truth is very seldom understood by any but imaginative persons... and I want to be quite truthful.”
