  • The Rake's Progress (The Notorious Gentleman in the United States)

    1945. Great Britain. Directed by Sidney Gilliatt. With Rex Harrison, Lilli Palmer, Godfrey Tearle, Griffith Jones. In retrospect it seems inevitable that there would be at least one Harrison film with "rake" in the title, for he embodied this quality as no film actor has before or since. While paying only light regard to the horrors of its source—a grim series of William Hogarth engravings from the eighteenth century—Gilliatt's version gives Sir Rex free rein to turn on the charm as only he could. 120 min.
