  • Production

    The film was made by a partnership of six people, none of whom took payment: Clive Donner, Alan Bates, Robert Shaw, Harold Pinter and Michael Birkett.

    No distributor expressed interest in funding the film, which meant it was unable to attract investment from the National Film Finance Corporation, because it was unable to give money to projects without a reasonable chance of a commercial screening. The budget was eventually raised with the support of a consortium, which included such figures as Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Noël Coward and Peter Sellers, each member giving £1,000.

    Reception

    The film was unable to obtain a release in London until it first screened in New York. According to Janet Moat, "the film is striking. Donner deploys a non-musical soundtrack, close-ups and two-shots to unsettling and menacing effect."
