Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Fake was based on a surprisingly grim Frederick Lonsdale play. The title character could be just about anyone in this British "problem" drama. It might be the member of parliament who forces his daughter into politically correct marriage; or the husband, whose respectable facade hides a ruinous drug habit; or the girl's lover, a semi-quack. The film's star-studded cast includes prominent actor/director Henry Edwards and American expatriate Juliette Compton, along with such British perennials as Miles Mander, Ursula Jeans and Ivan Simpson.
