The Night Has Eyes

Synopsis: Two teachers, man-hungry Doris and restrained Marian, visit the Yorkshire moors a year after friend Evelyn disappeared there. On a stormy night, they take refuge in the isolated cottage of Stephen, one-time pianist shellshocked in the Spanish Civil War. Doris flees as soon as the flood subsides; but Marian's suspicions about Evelyn's fate, in conflict with her growing love for Stephen, prompt her to stay on among the misty bogs.
Director(s): Leslie Arliss
Production: Associated British Picture Corporation

They can get you into almost anywhere.

If you take my advice Miss, you'll not go

traipsing over the moors this afternoon.

The glass is falling, and

weather might be a bit mucky.

Well that settles it. No lady ever

goes traipsing in mucky weather.

Thank you, Sergeant.

Why, hello.

Oh, hello.

Well. This is a pleasant surprise.

What are you doing here?

Oh, I just happened to be passing.

Oh you just "happen to be passing"

pretty often, don't you?

It's a gift.

But what were you doing in the .. clink?

Just getting some details.

About the way Evelyn went on

her last walk across the moors?


I wish you'd give up

that idea .. it's morbid.

Sorry, Barry. We've been discussing

all that for the past three days.

Alright. But at least let me drive you.

Only part of the way.

You've got your work to do.

They only call me in

for births and deaths.

The people around this

place live to be a hundred.

What about births?

Very rare.

The husbands and wives

don't get on so well together.

Hop in.

On my left, you have

the Yorkshire moors.

On my right, you have

the Yorkshire moors.

And when we get over the crest of that

rise, you'll have a magnificent view ..

Of the Yorkshire moors.

You must be psychic.

Barry, I think we'd better get out now.

I don't hold with it.

Big moors are no places for small girls.

Besides, the Copper was right.

The weather is going

to be definitely mucky.

It's no good, Barry. We're going.

Say that again, will you.

About going?

No. The "Barry" part.

It always gives me a thrill.


Pardon me if I interrupt the love scene

of the century, but when do we walk?


Will you stop here, Barry?

Goodbye, Barry.

Don't worry about the weather. We'll

be at Pensley long before nightfall.
