Three years after Tony Richardson failed to breathe cinematic life into Evelyn Waugh's novel The Loved One, ex-documentary director John Krish had a stab at Waugh's partly autobiographical 1928 work, Decline and Fall, which ranks among the most spectacular literary debuts of the century.
Satire starring Robin Phillips. The life of ingenuous Oxford undergraduate Paul Pennyfeather becomes increasingly complicated after he is hired by aristocratic Margot Beste-Chetwynde to tutor her son.
