Straight on Till Morning (Peter Collinson, 1972)

Straight on Till Morning

Hammer Studios

Dir:Peter Collinson, 1972

Starring: Rita Tushingham, Shane Briant, James Bolam, Tom Bell.

Watched this today and don't really know what to make of it, i found the main actress to be annoying (them again i think she's supposed to be so she probably did a good job).

A girl moves from Liverpool to London as she is desperate for someone to give her a baby and ends up shacking up with a murderer.

The first half of the film had that late 60's early 70's cool feel to it which seemed to disappear half way and the film became a bit claustrophobic.

There was only really one bit i found a bit disturbing (the scene with the tape player), The story was good but i feel they could have made a better film with what they had to offer (and maybe a bit more suspenseful) and it just seemed to end a bit suddenly.

I noticed Tommy Godfrey who was in 2 of my 70's favourites Love thy neighbour and Mind your language was in it, got a listing in the start credits but only had one scene in a shop paying his paper bill.

Anyone got any thoughts on this?

I saw this a while ago and thought it was good - quite stark in places; the guy that played the looney tune was pretty damn good in the flick. This was apparently marketed as "Hammer's First Love Story" when it initially came out.

He reminded me of Chris Mitchum.

It makes you think that in the trailer then suddenly goes all moody.

Watched this a few months ago and I enjoyed it, I wasn't sure what I felt at the end. As I said to one of my mates it comes across like Alfie meets Psycho. Interesting little film though.

There was a tape release in the US called "Til Dawn Do We Part" that referred to it as "A Love Story from Hammer... With A Twist."  It was also released under the retitling "Dressed for Death."
