Joe Beckett drifts from one job to another, woman to woman, in the seedy world of bedsitters and all-night cafes. Living in the wasteland between Notting Hill and Earl’s Court, he heats up tins on gas rings, smuggles girls past the landlady. He has no values or beliefs. A chance encounter with a roadhouse braggart brings him the opportunity to murder someone ‘to shock himself back to life’. The Furnished Room was filmed as West 11, starring Alfred Lynch as Joe, Kathleen Breck as the good-time girl Isla, and a cast including Eric Portman and Diana Dors.
