A Murder of Quality

The British class system is under fire in this adaptation of John Le Carre's novel. One-time spy master George Smiley (Denholm Elliott) is called in to investigate the murder of Stella Strode, a schoolteacher's wife at a public school. She had predicted her own death in a letter to a friend. Encountering snobbery and slippery alibis at every turn, Smiley must figure out which attitudes and lies are relevant to the facts of the case. Elliott is excellent in the role of Smiley (most famously played by Alec Guinness in other Le Carre adaptations) and also features Glenda Jackson and a young Christian Bale.
