THE INNOCENTS was a key movie for me in 1961, being all of 15 at the time. It was the scariest thing since PSYCHO. Over the years its subtle pleasures have increased and its certainly for me the best version of the Henry James Story. As the BFI says:
"With its superlative script (largely by Truman Capote) and arguably the finest performance of Deborah Kerr’s career, Jack Clayton’s film of Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw is one of cinema’s greatest ghost stories."
