Othello is translated to the world of sixties Soho jazz clubs in Basil Dearden’s 1962 smoky and sensational All Night Long.
Over the course of one eventful evening, the anniversary celebration of the musical and romantic partners Aurelius Rex (Paul Harris) and Delia Lane (Marti Stevens), a jealous, ambitious drummer, Johnny Cousin (Patrick McGoohan), attempts to tear the interracial couple apart.
This daring psychodrama also features on screen appearances by jazz legends Charles Mingus, Dave Brubeck, Johnny Dankwork and Tubby Hayes.
Followed by a Q&A with John Simons, one of the leading menswear designers in 1960’s London, introducing the Ivy League look to young, fashion-obsessed Mods.
