The Fallen Idol. Carol Reed's 1948 black-and-white suspense classic, beautifully restored, follows a young boy (Bobby Henrey) who lives in a palatial London embassy and whose friendship with his father's majordomo (Ralph Richardson) is thrown into jeopardy. A view of the adult world through a child's eyes, it puts innocence and inquisitiveness at odds with violence, desire, deceit - all the stuff that grownups trade in. No MPAA rating Genius. A true-life, truly inspirational study of the relationship between American novelist Thomas Wolfe and Maxwell Perkins, the editor who brought Look Homeward, Angel and Of Time and the River to the world.
