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.

I believe the word for it is "delicious".
A marvellous film featuring Dirk Bogart, great film making and story telling. Good delivery too!
This was my first Losey and it was brilliant. Dirk Bogarde, James Fox, Sarah Miles and Wendy Craig were all excellent and Pinter's screenplay (first one, I believe) was outstanding. The Studio Canal disc looked great and was packed with so many supplements that it took a few days to go through. Great buy!
