The Nightcomers

I planned to post something yesterday or today about Britten’s Turn of the Screw, but this will have to wait a bit while I work through some computer-related issues. To tide you over until then, I thought I’d share this oddball clip from The Nightcomers, a 1971 “prequel” to the James novella with Marlon Brando hamming it up as Peter Quint.

I know it’s hard to believe, but this is actually one of least offensive moments in the film.
