High Bright Sun: A young American archaeologist of Cypriot parentage is visiting Cypriot friends who, unbeknown to her, are involved in the local terrorist racket. When she learns more than she should, her loyalty is divided between the Cypriots and the British, in the form of an intelligence major. It is his job to guard her, although she proves rather frosty, but despite this, the young major falls for her charms.

Spanish Gardner: Separated from his wife and embittered by lack of promotion, Harrington Brande (Michael Hordern) is posted to a small port in Spain. With him goes his young son Nicholas (Jon Whiteley), a shy boy forced to lead a quiet life by his domineering father. At their new home they meet their gardener, José (Dirk Bogarde), who strikes up a friendship with the boy. As Nicholas’s father realises this, out of jealousy, he bans them from speaking. Things go from bad to worse when Nicholas’s watch is stolen and planted on José, who is then arrested. Will his father realise the meaning of true friendship before it is too late?

Esther Waters: Released in the USA in an edited version titled “The Sin of Esther Waters,” this is the original un-cut UK version featuring Dirk Bogarde in his first starring role, playing a roguish character in this bodice-ripper set in Victorian England. The film also perfectly recreates details of the horse racing scene at the Derby.

Esther Waters (Kathleen Ryan) is a young woman living in 1880. Brought up by a puritanical mother, she leaves to become a servant in an aristocratic household. There she falls in love with the footman, William Latch (Bogarde), who seduces and then abandons her. Pregnant and alone, she returns to London to find her mother dead. With no one but herself for comfort she struggles to survive. A tale of the strength of the human spirit in the face of adversity.
