Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Kenneth Haigh, Nanette Newman and Harry Andrews give compelling performances in this hard-hitting 1973 film tracing the progress of Joe Lampton, the aggressively ambitious protagonist of John Braine's Room at the Top. Offering a grittier treatment than the 1959 film adaptation and the subsequent television series which sequelised Braine's classic novel, Man at the Top is featured here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio. Northerner Joe Lampton becomes involved with Lord Ackerman, the powerful chairman of a pharmaceutical concern, his beautiful wife Alex, and daughter Robin. But trouble starts when Joe is made Managing Director of one of Ackerman's companies and makes a shocking discovery: his predecessor committed suicide...

Man at the Top

Man at the Top is very good. I owned this film on video years ago, it's a feature-length film based on the television series of the same name. Kenneth Haigh takes up the role of Joe Lampton, who was originally played by Laurence Harvey in both the previous films of this genre, "Room at the Top" (1958) and "Life at the Top" (1965). The only thing that I was disappointed with was the fact that the disc in housed in a slim-line (7mm) case, instead of the normal (14mm standard) DVD case. I don't like these slim-line cases at all, they are very flimsy and awkward to open. The cover artwork was very good, it even had a photo of the original Quadposter on the inside of the sleeve.
