The Quare Fellow (1967)

Quite the pleasant surprise. Patrick McGoohan is subdued, but always interesting, as a young, idealistic prison guard who gets involved with the wife of a quare fellow, or condemned man. New evidence comes to light and McGoohan’s pro-death penalty stance begins to shift. The Quare Fellow is adapted from a Brendan Behan play, but loses much of its stage trappings in Peter Hennessy‘s cinematography.
