Happily married housewife Judith Wynter (Margaret Leighton) keeps the fact that she is a best-selling author of steamy romance novels a closely guarded secret. As her husband, Roger (Ralph Richardson), recovers from a serious illness, the couple’s new driver Carlo (Carlo Justini) discovers the manuscript of Judith’s latest novel and jumps to a rather unfortunate conclusion, making life in the Wynter household very complicated, indeed!
Boldly experimental in form and an entertaining riposte to the romance novel. Extras:
- An Out and Out Feminist: Muriel Box and The Passionate Stranger
- The Woman Behind the Picture: Archive interview with Muriel Box Part 1
