His Séance (2000) is based on Bryan Forbes's 1964 Séance on a Wet Afternoon.
Speaking of Forbes, his excellent The L-Shaped Room (1962), starring a low-key Leslie Caron in a Tushingham-style unwed mother role, is one of the few links missing from "Look Back at England." But you can seek it out on video and discover the source behind the opening moments of The Queen Is Dead. (Johnny Ray Huston)
