Goofs

When Patrick McGoohan's character is playing a drum solo about halfway through the film, the drum kit used is different in the medium shots and POV shots, suggesting that the latter were likely shot at a later time with a different drummer. See more »

Forgotten Classic?
29 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film, based on Othello, is neatly positioned as a vehicle to showcase some of the best Jazz musicians of the period -- including Dave Brubeck and Charlie Mingus.

What is most interesting about this film is how it handles racial relations. That was an important part of "Othello", but really defined the 1960s. I love how 1963 was the year of the "I Have a Dream" speech, but already in England films like this had blacks and whites mingling without any sort of trouble. How much more mature they were...

The film was released by The Criterion Collection in January 2011, and it deserved to be. Criterion has done a great job of finding lost classics and cleaning them up -- the beautiful black and white cinematography deserves to be seen, and the jazz soundtrack deserves to be heard.
