The Male of the Species - Three Plays By Alun Owen DVD

Starring Sean Connery, Michael Caine, Anna Calder-Marshall, Paul Scofield

Directed by Charles Jarrott



Three-part sequence of plays filmed in the 1960s featuring Sean Connery, Michael Caine and narration from Laurence Olivier.

Anna Calder-Marshall stars as Mary MacNeil, a young woman who struggles to form a satisfactory relationship with any man.

As well as facing up to the demands of her sexist and confrontational father (Connery), Mary must deal with the smooth charm of playboy Cornelius (Caine), who becomes besotted with her.

Mary is also romanced by Emlyn Bowen (Paul Scofield), a QC who is several years older than her and seems to possess the compassion, respect and tolerance her father so badly lacks.

Which of the three men, if any, will ultimately win her heart?
