British filmmaker John Schlesinger directs Separate Tables, a made-for-cable TV version of the Terence Rattigan plays +Table By the Window and +Table Number Seven. This 50-minute adaptation features Julie Christie and Alan Bates, each in a dual role. Set in a sleepy British town, a group of residents hide out in a hotel during the off-season and try to forget their troubles. Things get upset when former model Ann Shankland (Julie Christie) comes to visit her alcoholic ex-husband John Malcolm (Alan Bates). He is a struggling writer secretly in love with the hotel's owner, Pat Cooper (Claire Bloom). Other residents of the hotel include the overbearing Mrs. Railton-Bell (Irene Worth), whose distrubed daughter Sibyl (Christie) is strangely attracted to Major Pollock (Bates), a man who claims to be a military officer. The feature-length version of Separate Tables was released theatrically in 1958, starring Burt Lancaster and Wendy Hiller.
