Featuring rare television performances from Sean Connery, Michael Caine and Paul Scofield, and with Anna Calder-Marshall as the increasingly savvy Mary MacNeil, this trilogy of plays, narrated by Sir Laurence Olivier, forms a dramatic and controversial study in male behaviour. Part of ITV s celebrated anthology series Saturday Night Theatre, Male of the Species was written by Oscar-nominated playwright Alun Owen and originally screened in 1969 to great acclaim, earning Primetime Emmy Awards for both Paul Scofield and Anna Calder-Marshall. Never trust a man whoever he is. This is the bitter lesson learned by Mary MacNeil in her relationships with three different men: her father, a mendacious womaniser; a smooth-talking office flirt, Cornelius; and an elderly barrister, Emlyn, who is enchanted by Mary s youthful vitality and charm. Only one of these men will win her heart in the end...
