Quartet (1948)

Director: Harold French
Screenplay: R.C Sherriff (based on the short story ‘The Alien Corn’ by W. Somerset Maugham)
Role: George Bland

Dirk jumped at the more substantial role of George Bland in the ‘Alien Corn’ segment of Maugham’s Quartet, to offset earlier roles he considered limited in scope. The sensitive, aspiring pianist gives all for art.
