From Joseph Losey, the legendary director of The Lawless, Figujres in a Landscape and The Romantic Englishwoman, comes the 1967 melodrama Accident, with a screenplay by the great Harold Pinter (The French Lieutenant’s Woman).

When one of his students is killed in a car accident, an Oxford professor (Dirk Bogarde, Death in Venice) recounts the circumstances of their meeting. But as these turbulent memories unfold, they reveal a series of shocking relationships betrayed by adultery, obsession and self-destruction in which nothing is what it seems and everything has its cost. Accident was the second of three brilliant collaborations between filmmaker Losey and playwright Pinter; the first was the 1963 masterpiece The Servant and the third, the 1971 classic The Go-Between.

Michael York (Something for Everyone), Vivien Merchant (The Maids), Delphine Seyrig (Last Year at Marienbad) and Freddie Jones (Juggernaut) co-star in this stunner based on a novel by Nicholas Mosley (The Assassination of Trotsky) and shot by Gerry Fisher (Man on Fire, The Offence).
