Immediately reteaming with his Darling Oscar winners, Julie Christie and screenwriter Frederic Raphael, Schlesinger went big yet intimate in filming the classic Thomas Hardy novel. Amidst the 19th-century English countryside, independent-minded Christie fields the attentions of pining landowner Peter Finch, preening Army Sergeant Terence Stamp—and, in a Golden Globe Award-nominated turn—shepherd Bates, who won’t wait for her while there’s farm work to do. Shot by Nicolas Roeg.
