It's not Robert Bolt.

But it's related to a sort of bolt.

The sort with the nut.

But even if you get that, that's not the title of the film.

They changed it.

I'd have criticised the name change.

But they'd say they're not guilty.

I'd absolve them for name screw up.

Never got the chance to watch it, partly because I almost sure to experiment disappointment...

Is William Alwyn's score effective ?

A fellow walks into a seaside bar called "The Screw".

He orders his drink and as he's sitting there he notices a sea bird sitting at the bar having a drink, too.

The bird seems pretty much at home, and the fellow has seen him there many times before.

So he goes up to him and asks him why he's always in the bar and not outside flying around.

The bird says, "Well, I'm the bar's mascot. They call me "The Tern of The Screw".

So I guess you're leaving no tern unstoned.

Your jokes aren't funny, guys. Asinine, but not funny.

Jack Clayton's THE INNOCENTS (1961) is generally acknowledged as one of the two or three finest ghost stories ever told on film. It operates almost entirely on subtext, and asks if the ghosts we're shown are really there. If you're not too stupid to understand the film, you'll realize the necessity for the title change. A hint: it has to do with the children, not the ghosts or the haunting.

“The Innocents” is in excellent hands. The only “disappointment” connected to this movie is the original ads suggesting a cheesy William Castle-ness or those British Hammer Horror flicks. That’s what originally harmed the box office response, and by the time 20th Century Fox realized it had an “art house” offering it was too late to re-book with appropriate sell. Waste no more time in not seeing it.

It is one of those rare films where when there is nothing big that seems to be happening on screen, Your mind starts to get absorbed into the film and premise creating a spooky virtual reality that works.

I was referring to THE NAKED EDGE.

Richard, Ralph + Dan are right -

THE INNOCENTS is one of the greatest ghost stories ever put on film - it is also a psychological exploration of the supernatural - Deborah Kerr is pitch perfect as the nanny Miss Giddens and the children - Martin Stephen and Pamela Franklin- are amazingly good - scary but sweet . Overall it is actually quite frightening, no matter how you interpret it.


I love to have a release of Georges Auric's haunting score. The eerie song little Flora sings - O Willow Waly - fits perfectly.
