A BATON FOR THE CONDUCTOR

George Conway, a frustrated civil servant, starts to drift dangerously into another identity as a conductor, and his troubled wife consults a psychiatrist, Durrant- Atwill. Believing that only fulfillment will dispose of the wish, Durrant- Atwill arranges the non-appearance of conductor Sir Richard Parkington at a festival abroad, puts his patient on the podium and effects an unorthodox cure.... A pleasant improvisation with a deliberate bravura.
