5.0 out of 5 stars Gerry O'Hara's...All The Right Noises. 16 Oct 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This film made by the talented Director/Writer Gerry O'Hara. This film was made in 1969, and arrangements with Distributors Warner Bros, shelved the release until 1971. Cannot think, why such a time delay.
The actors, Tom Bell, Olivia Hussey and Judy Carne give very believable performances, thanks to the guided direction of Gerry O'Hara.The posters for the film, were very sensational, giving a daring and dramatic account...is 15i/2 too young, Is One Wife Enough For Any Man?

I do not think Gerry O'Hara had anything to do with these type of poster advertising. The film is very well made and Tom Bell gives a stellar performance as the electrician falling for the under aged...Olivia Hussey, who shoes considerable in-depth acting technique.

If you like films from the 60's - like to see the fashions and cars etc from this period, then this film is a must for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Intriguing Story That Stops Too Soon 18 Jun 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This was the first film made by lovely teenager Olivia Hussey since the 1968 release of Franco Zeffirelli's "Romeo and Juliet" brought richly-deserved accolades. "All the Right Noises" was produced in 1969 and released two years later to generally positive reviews. Tom Bell is quite believable as a married, 32-year-old theatrical electrician, Len, who falls for the precocious charms of a 15-year-old dancer/singer named Val. Judy Carne does well too, as Len's unsuspecting wife, Joy, and director Gerry O'Hara directs with a light touch -- in fact, probably a bit too light for this highly provocative material. I liked the realism of "All the Right Noises" very much but confess to being disappointed by the indeterminate conclusion of O'Hara's script. The ending just sort of trails off under the credits, and we are left to wonder what (if any) consequences accrued. Still, this film is worth seeing, if only to savour the stunning beauty of Olivia Hussey, whom I regard as the most enchanting young actress ever to appear on a motion picture screen.

A fascinating extra is the full, sixteen-minute interview that Bernard Braden made (in October 1967) with the talented stars of "Romeo and Juliet," Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey.

'All the Right Noises' blessing has also been its curse. The controversial plot of an married family man's affair with a 15 year old girl (the film was sold with the eye-catch tagling 'Is 15 1/2 too young for a girl? Is one wife enough for one man?') is a large part of what makes the film so interesting, but the film's bold focus seems to have overshadowed the fact that this is, as much as anything, just a fantastic piece of British Drama. Director Gerry O'Hara's script is superb, and provides a good deal of the chemistry between the good natured and caring, but unfaithful Len (Tom Bell), and the initially naive, alluring Val (Olivia Hussey, in her first performance post-'Romeo and Juliet'). The two starts, though, both put in superb performances; especially Hussey, whose transformation from quietly flirtatious girl, to troubled, desperately-in-love young woman, is an extremely powerful one.

The film's cinematography is also excellent and subtle, often incorporating some superb symbolism, such as the image of the increasing gulf of the sea, between the faces of Len and Val, during a moment when they are more uncertain of one another, than before. Add in the superb soundtrack from '60s songwriter Melanie, which juxtaposes beautifully with the struggles of both Len and Val, and also of Len's loving, but uncertain wife, Joy, and this genuinely has all the makings of a fantastic piece of British cinema. It's very rare I find a film to be essentially without fault, but 'All the Right Places' is such a film. Simply brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Striking all the right notes 2 Jan 2010
By Alsom
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Finally, this previously rarely seen film from 1969, has emerged on DVD and Blu-Ray, with very acceptable picture and sound, for an old obscurity such as this. Personally, i thoroughly enjoy repeatedly watching this tastefully presented film about married electrician Tom Bell's affair with a young starlet Olivia Hussey. The stars play their parts very convincingly, and should you be receptive to it's magic, it will leave you, at the very least, entertained. Gerry O'Hara, thank you!

3.0 out of 5 stars A satisfying 'little' film 14 May 2013
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
All the Right Noises is one of those nice `little' films that used to get made in the UK in the late 60s and early 70s because UK cinemas were still required by law to show a quota of local films, most of which would be relegated to second features or quickly disappear after being booked for a slow week. It was especially unlucky to be shelved for a couple of years by 20th Century Fox and then released the same week as [I]Love Story[/I], ensuring it was gone and forgotten within a week despite some good reviews. So forgotten, in fact, it doesn't seem to have turned up even on late night television and until the BFI's Bluray and DVD release seems to have remained almost completely unseen since its brief theatrical release.

The premise - a married stage electrician has an affair with a 15-year-old actress - and the presence of Gerry O'Hara, director of The Bitch, behind the camera imply sleazy exploitation (`Is 15 too young for a girl? Is one wife enough for one man?' screamed the poster), but instead it's a nicely underplayed slice of life that avoids the opportunities for titillation for something more naturalistic and underplayed. The underage angle is downplayed in favor of something more non-judgmental, although the absence of drama or melodrama until the last half hour works slightly against it - there's little tension in the relationship until that point and no real consequences, just recognisably human characters falling in and out of a relationship as they lie to themselves, which probably limits its appeal.
