Somerset Maugham introduces an enjoyable compendium of his own short stories, with strong ensemble performances from the likes of Ian "007" Fleming, Dirk Bogarde, Mai Zetterling, Basil Radford and Naughton Wayne from the days when Britain had a real film industry. Each of the four segments is a morality tale, reflecting the values of the immediate post-War era. A wonderful social document.
