Two British 'B'movies from 1962......Husband and wife team David McCallum (later in tv's 'The Man from Uncle') and Jill Ireland star in 'Jungle Street', which has a sound screenplay and is a well acted crime drama (even the minor roles are well played). Direction is sound, with good compositions and some excellent editing. Scenes at the 'Adam and Eve Club' could have been spiced up a bit more, but perhaps they didn't want an 'X' certificate. McCallum reprises the type of character he played in 'Violent Playground' (1958). 'Jungle Street' is an above average 'B' movie, though it is rather short of action.
'A Matter of Choice'is much weaker, and it doen't really get going until 30 minutes have passed, with far too much padding in the script with two Oxbridge/Public school type young men trying to pick up girls in a coffee bar and then a jazz club. These two 'Horray Henrys' become irritating after a while. The pace is sluggish - more like a routine episode of ITV's Armchair Theatre from 1962. Not really cinema material. 'Star'Anthony Steel has very little screen time, and the only other face you might recogise in the Major from TV's 'Fawlty Towers', who plays a cuckolded husband.
Prints of both films used for the DVD are very good, and presented in the correct aspect ratio (almost widescreen)
