- About this book
Amy Sargeant's illuminating study of Joseph Losey's The Servant (1963) provides a detailed discussion of the film's production and reception history, as well as a textual analysis that focuses on Harold Pinter's adaptation of Maugham's novella; the film's use of architecture and interior design to establish character and relationships.
