    Some of the gloss of Room at the Top rubs off on this follow-up, but the film lacks both the motivation and rare subtlety which elevated its predecessor.

    Based upon a second novel by John Braine, the sombre, sometimes dreary but usually honest drama picks up its narrative 10 years later. The Mordecali Richler screenplay continues the story of the young, designing opportunist who rose to the top in social and business standing, but at loss of his self-respect, as limned in Room. Now, however, after having enjoyed the position he sought for a decade, he is even more aware of the necessity of clinging to his ideals and tries to do something about a life he has found empty.

    Laurence Harvey continues in the mood of his character in Room, now sales chief of his millionaire father-in-law's woolen mills in a sooty Yorkshire town. Jean Simmons as his wife (replacing Heather Sears in original role) has a rather unsympathetic character which she nonetheless enacts persuasively.
