3 things about Sidney Lumet’s THE DEADLY AFFAIR

The Deadly Affair [1966]

1. He silently watches her fix herself a cup of tea. He neither asks for one himself, nor does she offer one.
2. “You never said that. Additionally, I never heard you.”
3. His hands gripping the edge of the muddy embankment. Dobbs savagely stomps on them.

Very underrated. Interesting to see James Mason play an alternate version of George Smiley. The Quincy Jones score may be a bit jarring but it’s groovy as hell.
