Finally Stayed Awake
13 March 2008 | by howardmorleySee all my reviews

Yes this has a novel ending but it cannot escape the accusation of being a filmed play and so suffers from wordy, static indoor scenes.I have tried several times to watch it to the end but found myself dozing off halfway through (danger of watching after a nice boozy lunch!).Derick de Marnay is credited as associate producer of "Latin Quarter" and plays the leading role of Charles the sculptor.I also have him on video in "Young and Innocent" (1938) directed by Hitchcock and on DVD in "Sleeping Car to Trieste" (1948) in which he was better.

I was intrigued to see Frederick Valk again here playing the doctor.His most notable role was as the German Kommandant in "The Colditz Story" (1955).I found "Latin Quarter" a little too melodramatic for my taste but was genuinely surprised to see that Joan Littlewood could dance ballet so well as it is not something that can be faked by an actor like playing a musical instrument.Overall I rated it 6/10.
