  • A quiet English lawyer prevents a scoundrel from acquiring the fortune of one of his clients - a lonely, but also rich, spinster.

    7.0
    The story is nothing very much - something, alas, true of too many entries in this series - but star power does count for something, and the excellent acting by Alec McCowen and Anna Massey finally makes this segment worthwhile. The two stars had both scored in Hitchcock's film "Frenzy" the previous year, although they had no scenes together. Here, Ms. Massey is unflatteringly cast as a reclusive and unbeautiful spinster whose loneliness leads her to permit a fortune-hunter to seduce her, and the whole-heartedness with which she plays someone a lot less attractive than she really was is admirable. McCowen is equally fine as the reserved legal eagle whose pedantic insistence on the "point of law" of the title provides the vile seducer's comeuppance.moreless
