    I say that as a Harold Pinter fan
    I heard you, Arfur. Pinter chose his words verrry carefully, so it often takes a second or third close viewing to connect the dots. Fine performances all round and worth the effort. Stanley Baker also gets a rare chance to step out of his stereotypical roles as a tough action figure.

    I've posted a review of Accident and photos at the Bogarde thread:

    For a Pinter production that really doesn't spell out anything, his play No Man's Land will leave you thinking and mulling it over for quite a while and then back for another view.

    Best,

    There's lots of interior action, which is an intriguing hook. Pinter was never into car crashes or
    giant leaps over buildings.

    In further recognition of Dirk's 90th and the forthcoming Bogarde Retrospective this summer, the BFI included in its 28th March streaming a telegram Dirk wrote to Joseph Losey talking about playing the role of Stephen in Accident. Very generous of the BFI as this rare telegram is in Special Collections and only available to researchers.

    I've uploaded the telegram at the Bogarde thread, an interesting read:

    I know what is meant in not really getting it the first time around. I had to watch it a couple of times to get an inkling. Still feel I missed something????
