British writer/director Donovan Pedelty, a past master at efficiently adapting stage plays for the screen, does a neat job with Charles Landstone's Behind Your Back. Stella Bonheur plays Lady Millicent Coombe, an eminent playwright about to launch her latest production. Lady Millicent is saddled with a company of trouble-prone actors, each with his or her insurmountable problems. Fortunately, all problems are surmounted, just seconds before the curtain goes up. Topping the cast is personable Jack Livesey; at the bottom of the list is Jimmy Mangeean, as a disgruntled "man from the stalls [the worst theatre seats, that is]."
