  • The Silken Affair

    1956. Great Britain. Directed by Roy Kellino. With David Niven, Geneviève Page, Ronald Squire, Beatrice Straight, Wilfrid Hyde White. This clever but slight satire about the effect of American technology on postwar British business practices was reviewed by Variety a week before their review of Around the World in 80 Days—proof that Niven was always a working actor. The film is included here as an example of his underappreciated comedic skills. 96 min.
