Synopsis: Oxford professor Stephen (Dirk Bogarde) is attracted to one of his pupils named Anna (Jacqueline Sassard) but a complicated series of relationships and a horrific accident interfere.

Cat Burglar (Scene Stealer): Two different cats appear very briefly in the film. The first is a black cat who can be seen on the tennis court while Stephen, Anna, a fellow Professor named Charley (Stanley Baker) and young student William (Michael York) are playing.

Kitty Cameo:  The other cat is a long-haired tuxedo cat being held by a boy, presumably the son of Laura (Ann Firbank) whom Stephen visits in one scene.
