James Ivory introduces Alfred Hitchcock's classic Gothic drama, which won the Academy Award for Best Picture.
James Ivory is not English, as is widely believed. What tempers his film-making identity, are his two closest associates, the late producer, Ismail Merchant, and the novelist and screenwriter, Ruth Jhabvala. This creative team, working together in the group they formed called Merchant Ivory Productions — one an American, one an Indian and one a European — made up the "wandering company" responsible for nearly all the films on which they collaborated. Whether set in Paris or Shanghai, Mumbai or London, the films all feature certain attributes with a distinctive Merchant Ivory stamp. Together they were responsible for A Room With a View (1986), Mr. & Mrs. Bridge (1991), Howards End (1993), The Remains of the Day (1994), The Golden Bowl (2000) and fifteen other feature films.
