In the history of connoisseurship this ploy may be worth recording, but for practical criticism I doubt that it has much to recommend it—ignoring as it does movies that take a while to find themselves at least in the viewer's mind , and movies that from a position of relative strength work inexorably toward a condition of absolute, unredeemable loss. In the latter category belongs John Mackenzie's "Unman, Wittering and Zigo," which opened yesterday at Cinema II, and which begins full of ripe and gruesome promise that very shortly turns overripe and openly ridiculous. Unman, Wittering and Zigo are the last three names on the roll call for Lower 5B, a form full of malignant malcontents at Chantry, a second-rate British public school, where young John Ebony David Hemmings , fresh from the disillusionments of a job in advertising, has come to teach. His appointment is something of a fluke, his predecessor having died in midterm from a tumble down a nearby cliff, and almost no time at all is lost before the gentlemen of Lower 5B inform their new master that the death was no accident; his predecessor was pushed, and they did the pushing. Ebony's problem, as Lower 5B knows full well, is that if he reports the murder, nobody will believe him he doesn't, at first, believe it himself , but if he keeps quiet and does a few favors for the class—not much work, decent grades for those who want them, bets placed and winnings collected from the local bookie, etc. A modus vivendi, the boys call it, but one that fails when Ebony learns that his appointment is not to be renewed and that he has, at Chantry, no academic career to protect—but only his own sanity and the well-being and perhaps respect of a wife Carolyn Seymour who is not long on wifely indulgence. It is when this happens, when the mood has all been built and the story begins to move, that "Unman, Wittering and Zigo" really falls apart, though it had never been too well glued from the beginning.

  1. The play is a thriller set in a traditional boys' boarding school where a senior form master has just been killed in a tragic accident. The main character is John Ebony, a teacher in his first job, brought in as a temporary measure, though one he hopes will be confirmed as permanent. Between his rebellious wife Nadia, the eccentric art master Cary Farthingale and the class of Lower 5B, Ebony struggles to exercise power, but is thwarted by reality and a disbelieving Headmaster. The resonant quotation from the play falls to the wise old Farthingale. 👷
