Movie Info

Based on the play by J.B. Priestley, this British mystery follows Inspector Poole (Alastair Sim) as he investigates the apparent suicide of Eva Smith (Jane Wenham), a young working-class woman. Paying a visit to the wealthy Birling household, Poole arrives in the middle of a dinner party and slowly reveals how each family member, including stern patriarch Arthur Birling (Arthur Young) and his uptight wife, Sybil (Olga Lindo), could have had a hand in Eva's death.

Critic Reviews for An Inspector Calls

  • The Birling's home... is decorated in High Smug Edwardian, which is not only a perfect evocation of the period, but also an apt visualization of the family's habit of encasing themselves in protective layers of denial.

    May 5, 2020 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • Not even the adroit Alastair Sim, in a noncomedy role as a mysterious investigator, can overcome the sluggish pace and contrived coincidences of this social-conscience drama...

Audience Reviews for An Inspector Calls

  • Feb 02, 2016
    The Twilight Zone didn't just appear out of thin air, there were many progenitors. In this one a well-to-do English family is visited by a police investigator looking into the death of a young woman. In what is partly a commentary on the generation gap, but mainly a ugly finger pointing at the class divide, this message movie remains interesting while delivering its pertinent if ever unheeded message. Very good.
