First love remembered and a second chance,
This review is from: The Kingfisher (DVD)
How many of us remember the great love of our youth. And for some reason or other the one that got away. Where is he/she now and is it possible for providence to give us a last opportunity to correct this?
Three great actors play out the scenario. As Cecil (Rex Harrison) discovers that his love Evelyn (Wendy Hiller) that getaway 50 years ago has been recently widowed and is passing by his home on the way from the funeral.
For 50 years Evelyn was married to an avid golfer who died on the seventeenth hole. Why did they get married? For 50 years Cecil decided never to marry and lived with his servant Hawkins (Cyril Cusack) who is not looking forward to the impending meeting.
This film is based on "The kingfisher: A comedy in two acts" by William Douglas Home and we are voyeurs watching these people and of course the kingfisher. You will have to watch again for all the nuances'. Also notice the extras on the DVD.
Be sure to watch Rex playing a character named Cecil in "The Honey Pot" (1967).

just wanted to say thanks, (and I concur), for mentioning The Honey Pot, a movie well worth looking out for with Rex Harrison, and many fine character actors/actresses; i came across by accident, have since recorded it myself. good going on the heads up to other folks - The Honey Pot is a fun, unique movie!
