The Europeans is a 1979 British Merchant Ivory film, directed by James Ivory, produced by Ismail Merchant, and with a screenplay by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, based on Henry James‘s novel by the same name.

Several interior scenes were filmed in New Ipswich

I took a few photos at the Center Cemetery and was yelled at by the film crew for shutter noise (didn’t stop me though). My current camera has a silent electronic shutter. I had a brief chance to speak with Robin Ellis (who was born in Ipswich England) about his role in Poldark which was a series that we enjoyed on PBS.
