KENNETH HAIGH AND NANETTE NEWMAN STAR IN “MAN AT THE TOP” (15)
Part of "The British Film" Collection
Kenneth Haigh, Nanette Newman and Harry Andrews give compelling performances in the hard-hitting and sexually explicit 1973 film MAN AT THE TOP (15), available to own on 22 April 2013, RRP £9.99.
The film traces the progress of Joe Lampton, the aggressively ambitious protagonist of John Braine’s Room at the Top. Offering a grittier treatment than 1959's film adaptation and subsequent television series which sequelised Braine’s classic novel, Man at the Top is featured here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
Northerner Joe Lampton becomes involved with Lord Ackerman, the powerful chairman of a pharmaceutical concern, his beautiful wife Alex, and daughter Robin. But trouble starts when Joe is made Managing Director of one of Ackerman’s companies and makes a shocking discovery: his predecessor committed suicide because of his involvement in a drug that had left a hundred women sterile. Joe attacks Ackerman with his knowledge of the facts, yet the chairman is strangely unperturbed.
