In his first starring role, Albert Finney gained international acclaim for his "impressive" (The New Yorker) portrayal of Arthur Seaton, a rebellious factory worker who lives only for his wild, carefree nights at the pub. A remarkable and influential drama that captures the despair of working class life, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning is "superbly enacted [and] one of the best of Britain's 'angry young men' dramas of the '60s." (Leonard Maltin). The sights and sounds of industrial Nottingham resonate with a grimy thud as Arthur Seaton works his tedious factory job. Through ale, women and practical jokes, he vents his frustrations against the "establishments" of work and marriage . . . until his reckless ways lead him to a night that changes his life. Forced to reevaluate his convictions, Arthur must decide exactly what he stands for. Fact From The Vault Producer Tony Richardson reunited with Albert Finney on "Tom Jones" (1963), winning Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Director.
