This adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello updates the tale to 1960s Britain and brings the jazz greats of the day along for the ride. Aurelius Rex (Paul Harris) is happily married to Delia (Marti Stevens). Patrick McGoohan (The Prisoner) plays Johnny Cousin (this film’s Iago) who is scheming to steal Rex’s job and starts to spread rumours of Delia’s unfaithfulness. 

Also starring Betsy Blair and Richard Attenborough, All Night Long is set against the jazz backdrop of Dave Brubeck, Charlie Mingus and many more.
