Country Dance is a confusing love triangle film, focusing on a woman and the two men in her life, one her husband and the other her brother.

Interiors were lensed at Ardmore Studios, Ireland, and exteriors in Ireland’s Wicklow County and in Perthshire, Scotland. The James Kennaway screenplay is based upon both his play, Country Dance, and his novel Household Ghosts.

Limning the decline and fall of Sir Charles Ferguson (Peter O’Toole), last scion of a noble Scottish family, there is in this descent the distasteful subject of the brother’s unhealthy love for his sister (Susannah York), who has left her husband (Michael Craig) to make her home with her brother on their family estate.

O’Toole’s enactment of the character who cannot face the reality of either losing his sister or the destruction of his traditional way of life on his dwindling estate is whimsically constructed.
