The Fallen Idol

Preview by Jack Foley

THE Fallen Idol is Carol Reed’s award-winning adaptation of Graham Greene’s short story, which is told primarily from a child’s perspective.

Philippe (Bobby Henrey) is the young son of a diplomat and he idolises Baines (Ralph Richardson), his father’s butler. When Baines’ wife is found murdered and Baines is implicated, Philippe tries everything to point the investigation away from the butler.

In doing so he makes matters worse and also discovers that his hero is not the man he thought he was.

The Fallen Idol is released on a digitally restored version on DVD on Monday, November 16, 2015.
