Staying On

Director: Silvio Narizzano, Irene Shubik Cast: Trevor Howard, Celia Johnson

DVD (Mono)


Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson, the stars of the classic British romantic drama Brief Encounter (1946), were reunited in the 1980 TV special Staying On. Adapted from the novel by Paul Scott, this 90-minute drama casts Howard and Johnson as an elderly British couple, spending their declining years in a faraway Himalayan resort. Though Colonial India is a thing of the past, the couple clings to their fading memories of the Raj's glory days. The film was lensed on location in Simia, a popular vacationing spot for British and Indian aristocracy. Staying On was first telecast in the US on May 11, 1981, as part of PBS' Great Performances series.
