The Fallen Idol
The Fallen Idol

Mondavi Center Presenting Program

Directed by Carol Reed (1948)
Not Rated,1 hour and 36 minutes

Philippe (Bobby Henrey), a diplomat’s son, worships the household butler, Baines (Ralph Richardson), who’s regaled the boy with tales of his life’s adventures. So, when his hero becomes implicated in a murder, Philippe will stop at nothing to protect his idol. This despite his own suspicions about the servant’s guilt. Adapted from a story by Graham Greene, director Carol Reed’s reflection on moral ambiguity earned him an Oscar nod for Best Director. Director Reed’s tour de force is to film the story from the perspective of the eightyear- old Philippe.
