Larry Kramer produced and adapted this arresting version of D.H. Lawrence’s 1920s-set novel, which accrued Oscar nominations for him, Russell, and cinematographer Billy Williams as well as a first Oscar win for Glenda Jackson. As a sensitive intellectual, Bates is the stable center around whom his social circle spins, among them rough-hewn coal industry heir Oliver Reed. The legendary nude wrestling scene between Bates and Reed is unforgettable and unique—the latter revealed that both actors got completely drunk before the cameras rolled.

A film by Ken Russell
