Movie Info

Based on the novel by Kingsley Amis, the British miniseries Stanley and the Women starred future Inspector Morse leading man John Thaw as Stanley Duke, a fortysomething advertising executive. Stanley's life was thrown into turmoil when his son Stephen (Samuel West) was diagnosed a schizophrenic. Making matters worse, Stanley's quiet home was suddenly besieged by a plethora of females, among them his past and current wives. In adapting Amis' entertaining but thinnish novel for television, Nigel Kneale (a name more closely associated with science fiction-dramas) made some fascinating additions, and also "cleaned up" the character of Stephen, who as originally written was plagued with delusions of an international Jewish conspiracy (Amis had not intended this story element to be offensive, pointing out that such delusions were common amongst schizophrenics, but the producers felt it was safer to eliminate Stephen's burgeoning anti-Semitism). Stanley and the Women was beamed out by Central Television in four hour-long episodes, beginning November 28, 1991.
