The Third Secret 03/02/19

Powerhouse Indicator
Region B Blu-ray

This moody, unsettling whodunnit benefits from sensitive cinematography, fine direction and a perfectly-cast group of players. Stephen Boyd gets a worthwhile starring role, backed by some good names and a nice debut from Judi Dench. What I don’t understand is why Pamela Franklin, possibly the most talented and versatile young English player ever, didn’t become a major star. She’s more than half the picture here. Co-starring Diane Cilento, Richard Attenborough, Jack Hawkins, Freda Jackson, Nigel Davenport and, in her first film, Judi Dench. On Region B Blu-ray from Powerhouse Indicator.
