Reviews

Reprising his role in R.C. Sherriff's West End stage hit, Ralph Richardson stars as a staid London bank clerk whose inexplicable amnesia leaves him without an alibi in the aftermath of a murder; Jack Hawkins stars as his doctor, and Margaret Leighton his equally perplexed wife.

This 1952 suspense feature saw Richardson heading an outstanding cast, as well as taking on the mantle of director for the first and only time in his career, with Guy Hamilton (best known for Goldfinger and Diamonds Are Forever) as assistant director; the result is a taut, compelling and very human drama that retains a gripping sense of mystery right up to its conclusion. Home at Seven is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements.

When David Preston returns home at seven, his distraught wife tells him that he did not come home at seven - or at any other time - the previous evening. In fact, he has no idea where he could have been; he recalls nothing between the time he left the bank on Monday and his arrival home that following evening. His doctor is inclined at first to treat it lightly, but everything changes when it emerges that during Preston's 'lost day', a murder and robbery have taken place...

I waited a long time for this movie to come out on DVD, and it was well worth the wait. Ralph Richardson is magnificent as the bank worker who loses his memory for a 24-hour period, then finds himself the chief suspect in a murder case. The film was made in the 1950s, and it's not just a perfectly crafted little thriller, but a nice little piece of history as well, reflecting the stiff upper lip attitudes of those days where a man might well be afraid to tell his wife he's been popping into the pub on his way home from work - for years! Some may find talking heads boring, but not when it's the wonderful Ralphy doing the talking. He was an amazingly sympathetic actor, who, unlike many of his famous contemporaries, had nothing of the Grandee about him. Margaret Leighton also gives a heart rending performance as his wife, shy and retiring, who loves him to death, but would never dream of being demonstrative about it. Then there's Jack Hawkins as the doctor, giving his usual competent and reassuring performance. The action is slow by today's standards, but the time just flew by for me. Highly recommended.

I like Sir Ralph Richardson. Most of his films show him in the same kind of gentle state. All his roles are unusual. We enjoyed the film, it is so refreshing after 5 mins of modern TV.

A good british thriller with the ever reliable Ralph Richardson. Like all stage actors Ralph Richardson has a wonderful wonderful voice which I could listen to all day. Jack Hawkins is of course in the film not as his usual inspector but the doctor who helps sort out the puzzle.

I came across this DVD by accident while searching for something else and I'm glad I decided to buy it.It's a mystery movie that holds your attention and keeps you guessing. Also directed by Ralph Richardson and with a great cast. Buy it.

More hokum and great acting from Jack Hawkins and Ralph Richardson. Wonderful cars too. Suspense was good but the basis for the story slightly let it down. Worth buying for a memory trip if you are of a certain age.

Nice to have yet another old B&W DVD especiailly wth such an array of old filmstars!

TV has so little to offer these days that I find that my DVD collection takes the brunt of my watching and the likes of Home at 7 are price - less.
