Ronald Neame directs this stately adaptation of Enid Bagnold’s play which tells of a haughty matriarch (Edith Evans) who employs a governess (Deborah Kerr) with a shadowy past to take care of her troubled teenage granddaughter (Hayley Mills), and her neglected garden. John Mills plays the butler who develops a soft spot for the governess, and navigates the fraught interpersonal relationships of the house. A hit with audiences upon its original release, The Chalk Garden benefits from a nuanced screenplay by the great John Michael Hayes (Rear Window) and tasteful photography by Arthur Ibbetson (Where Eagles Dare, Fanatic).
