Jazz on Film

All Night Long 15

Sun 19 Sep, 4.30pm

A brand new restoration, Basil Dearden’s thrilling neo-noir updates Shakespeare's Othello to the 1960s London jazz scene.

Set over the course of one evening, ambitious drummer Johnny Cousin (McGoohan) attends the wedding anniversary party of celebrated musicians Aurelius Rex and his wife Delia.

With aspirations of forming his own band Johnny has promised a promoter that he can convince singer Delia to come out of retirement, so Johnny sets a plan in place to prise Delia away from Rex - with disastrous consequences.

Patrick McGoohan is on hypnotic form as the conniving Johnny, and the film features performances by several prominent British jazz musicians - among them Tubby Hayes and John Dankworth - as well as the Americans Dave Brubeck and Charles Mingus.

All Night Long screens as part of our short season on classic Jazz on film titles, in celebration of the one-night-only reissue of documentary Jazz on a Summer's Day on Mon 30 Aug.
