Home at Seven is a 1952 British mystery drama film directed by and starring Ralph Richardson. It also features Margaret Leighton, Jack Hawkins, Campbell Singer and Michael Shepley. It is based on the play Home at Seven by R. C. Sherriff.[2] The film is Richardson's only work as director.[3] Guy Hamilton was assistant director. It was released on DVD in the UK on 30 June 2014 by Network Distributing.


A City of London banker returns at 7 p.m. to his suburban home in Kent one evening to discover that he has been missing for 24 hours, yet he does not remember the lost day.[4] He discovers that he is a major suspect in a robbery and a murder, but he does not know if he was involved or not. He is advised to employ an expensive lawyer to defend himself. It is ultimately revealed by a barmaid that he spent the evening in question in her pub, but had been acting oddly following a loud bang outside, which seemed to trigger a war time memory.


Critical reception

Variety stated that "Richardson directs the piece with a straightforward competence."[5] Sight & Sound was more critical: Richardson had "divided his talent between the principal role and the direction, but the latter is practically non-existent in any cinema sense".[6]
