The Last of Sheila (12)

Dir. Herbert Ross
1973 | 120 mins | US
Raquel Welch, Richard Benjamin, James Mason

The Last of Sheila, written by Anthony Perkins (Psycho) and Stephen Sondheim is a delightfully hammy whodunnit set on a Mediterranean cruise.

A year after the death of Sheila, a movie producer with a penchant for games invites a select group on a one week cruise and plays a game that threatens to reveal secrets from each of the participants… when the games start getting fatal truths start coming out.

Fans of the film include directors Edagr Wright and Rian Johnson, Johnson has sited The Last of Sheila as one of the inspirations for the Knives Out films, and writer Sondheim appeared in Knives Out: Glass Onion.

This selection of classic vacation films have been curated in response to the Phoenix Archive Project and to celebrate the new commissions that will be premiered July 16 6PM.

The Phoenix Archive is a newly restored archive of 16mm film footage dating from the 1930s to the 1960s, tracking one family’s travels and activities through this turbulent period. From daily life and family outings to major historical events and world travel, the archive represents an exciting historical record.

The Phoenix Archive Project has been made possible thanks to support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and The Radcliffe Trust.
