Encore is a comedic dramatic film comprised of three different short films adapted from short stories of W. Somerset Maugham that is the third in a trilogy of Maugham inspired films. In "The Ant and the Grasshopper", Pat Jackson directs a story of the lazy Tom Ramsay (Nigel Patrick) who has done little to work and instead takes all that he can from his brother, George (Roland Culver). When he swindles his brother into getting money, he ends up meeting the third richest woman in the world, Gertrude Wilmot (Margaret Vyner), and again ends up with all the good fortune without having to work for it. In "Winter Cruise", Anthony Pelissier directs a tale of an English old crone Molly Reid (Kay Walsh) whose jibber jabber tendencies aggravates her fellow passengers and crew on a cruise to Jamaica. Knowing she would be returning on the same ship, the group plans to keep her occupied with a poor steward, Pierre (Jacques Francois). In "Gigolo and Gigolette", Harold French directs a story about Stella and Syd Cotman (Glynis Johns and Terence Morgan) whose successful nightclub act in Monte Carlo is put at risk when another older couple (Mary Merrall and Martin Miller) reveals their apprehension over their dangerous act. Stella, in her bid to get out of the act, tries to win enough to leave Monte Carlo only to lose it big time, leaving her with no choice but to go on with the act.moreless
