|Cast||Paul Scofield John McEnery Thorley Walters Colin Jeavons Raymond Mason Charles Kinross Neville Barber Robin Askwith Hope Jackman John Watson Christine Dingle Rosalind Elliot Tony Parkin|
|Plot||Updated to 1970s London, this faithful adaptation of Herman Melville's classic follows a young accounting clerk rebelling against his employer by responding to demands to do work by saying, "I prefer not to." This is carried on ad absurdum until the office is in chaos because the other employees must do Bartleby's work. His boss is unable to fire or help him and eventually has him placed in a mental hospital. Paul Scofield (A Man for All Seasons), John McEnery (The Duellists) and Thorley Walters (TV's "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy") star in this impeccably mounted study of employment, insanity, and the rigors of everyday life from one of literature's most acclaimed geniuses.... see Bartleby on IMDb|
