The View from Pompey's Head (1955) DVD-R

Quick Overview

Starring Richard Egan, Dana Wynter, Cameron Mitchell, Sidney Blackmer, Marjorie

Rambeau, Dorothy Patrick, Jerry Paris

Directed by Philip Dunne



Print: color

Runtime: 97 min.

Genre: drama



Miscegenation, that old reliable bugaboo of many a Southern-based novel, is at the center of

Hamilton Basso's The View from Pompey's Head. The film version stars Richard Egan as a

New York lawyer who returns to his Southern home town to investigate an embezzlement

charge. The victim is an ageing novelist (Sidney Blackmer), whose royalties are

mysteriously disappearing; the novelist's wife (Marjorie Rambeau) suspects that her

husband is being cheated. But it is the novelist himself who is siphoning off his earnings, in

order to provide for his African-American mother, and to buy her silence regarding his

mixed parentage. The wife is apprised of the situation, and agrees to keep mum. With all

this going on, it's understandable that few viewers remember the love triangle between

Richard Egan, Dana Wynter and Cameron Mitchell which motivates the rest of The View

from Pompey's Head.
