Tuesday Night at the Movies: The Shooting Party
Before Gosford Park and Downton Abbey, there was The Shooting Party—the last hurrah of the pre–World War I ruling class. While Europe stands on the brink of a world war in 1913, Sir Randolph Nettleby (James Mason) hosts a weekend of shooting on his estate for aristocrats. Mason stars alongside Edward Fox and John Gielgud in this ensemble drama adapted from Isabel Colegate’s novel.
