        Nominated for the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival in 1952, Encore consists of three engaging portrayals of everyday life that rise above the merely ordinary through the evergreen writing talents of W. Somerset Maugham, the master of the short story.

        • The Ant and the Grasshopper tells the story of a workshy fop whose freeloading days are ended by his dictatorial brother. But his brother hasn't heard the last of him yet...

        • Winter Cruise  A middle-aged spinster goes on a winter cruise to Jamaica. On board and determined to be the life and soul of the party, she talks and talks and talks...

        • Gigolo and Gigolette  Stella performs in a high-dive act in a variety bar on the Riviera. When her husband comes into money, she gets a glimpse of the future, and isn't happy with what she sees.

        The quality of writing in this charming compilation is derived not only from Maugham';s original material but also from the work of gifted scriptwriters Academy Award winner T.E.B. Clarke and Academy Award nominee Eric Ambler. It is therefore no surprise that actors as impressive as Nigel Patrick, Kay Walsh, Roland Culver and Glynis Johns were drawn to this piece, which also features an introduction to each tale by Maugham himself.
