The Reckoning is the story of a ruthless man, who rises from a Liverpool slum to the upper strata of cutthroat big business in London. Actually a character study of a man totally without morals or ethics, it is interesting in its treatment and for Nicol Williamson’s performance in a hard-hitting role.

Filmed in story’s actual locale, script is based on Patrick Hall’s novel, The Harp That Once.

Scene segues from fashionable London, where Williamson, as an ambitious and aggressive businessman, is married to a woman he doesn’t love and is stymied from rising in his job by politics, to Liverpool. He is called there when his father is dying.

Williamson is entirely believable in his part, displaying a dominant personality and a flair for punching over his role.

Rachel Roberts is realistic as a married woman Williamson picks up at a wrestling match the night his father dies.
