The British class system is under fire in this adaptation of John LeCarre's (THE TAILOR OF PANAMA) novel. George Smiley (Deholm Elliot) is called in to investigate the murder of a schoolteacher's wife at a public school. Encountering snobbery and slippery alibis at every turn, Smiley must figure out which attitudes and lies are relevant to the facts of the case. Elliot is excellent in the title role of this British mystery which also features Glenda Jackson and a young Christian Bale.
