The Fallen Idol

Adapted from the Graham Greene story, Carol Reed’s The Fallen Idol is told almost completely from a child’s eye view – but it isn’t a children’s story.

Young Bobby Henrey idolizes household butler Ralph Richardson. Therefore, when it seems as though Richardson might be implicated in a murder, Bobby does his best to throw the police off the track. The boy succeeds only in casting even more suspicion upon Richardson. As the story progresses, Henrey’s hero worship is eroded by Richardson’s shifty behaviour.

“The Fallen Idol stands as one of the great films about looking, about perspective, about the way we watch and interpret not just film plots but each other.”
