Adapted from Robin Maugham's short story, 1963 drama The Servant marked the first of three collaborations between director Joseph Losey and celebrated playwright Harold Pinter.
Experienced manservant Barrett (Dirk Bogarde) starts working for foppish aristocrat Tony (James Fox) in his smart new townhouse. Much to the annoyance of Tony's girlfriend (Wendy Craig), Barrett slowly initiates himself into the house and begins to manipulate his master.
Nominated for five BAFTA's and winning three, including best actor for Dirk Bogarde, The Servant is notable for its ambitious technique and its willingness to engage with what were, at the time, issues never before seen in British cinema.
