    Quartet




    One of Britain's finest novelists, W. Somerset Maugham, hosts a portmanteau of his own short stories adapted for the screen. The four celebrated tales that comprise this moving drama are:

    The Facts Of Life charts the rise and fall of a young man gambling in Monte Carlo.

    The Alien Corn tells the story of a young man whose disapproving parents are horrified by his plans to become a professional pianist. They send him away to learn, hoping he will not be good enough.

    The Kite tells of a husband's passion for kite-flying and the marital strife he encounters when his wife wishes him to give up his hobby.

    The Colonel's Lady depicts a Colonel's disbelief at a passionate book written by his wife.

    Featuring a superior cast that includes Dirk Bogarde, Nora Swinburne, Cecil Parker, Honor Blackman, Mervyn Johns and Basil Radford, Quartet ably showcases the talent of this master storyteller.
