Genius, Photographer and Man of Letters,
This review is from: The Magnificent Evans [DVD] (DVD)
The Magnificent Evans was set in rural Wales and Barker's character, Plantagenet Evans, described himself modestly in his own publicity as a `Genius, Photographer and Man of Letters.' Although described by some as a `grandiose, hectoring Scaramouch driven by sordid motive and lust, but who is, ultimately lovable.' Lovable enough to be ably assisted by his long-standing fiancée Rachel (played by Sharon Morgan) although one would suspect that her motive for working so closely with him was to ensure his wandering hands did not wander too far and his wandering eye didn't wander too wide. When Evans wasn't at the lens of a camera he could be found dealing in a somewhat dubious sideline of wood burning stoves and antiques of debatable origin.
