One of the most underrated British films produced between the end of the swinging sixties and the beginning of the hippy seventies. Leonard Whiting (Romeo from Franco Zeffirelli s Romeo and Juliet) plays a young dreamer who is trapped in a working class existence: living in a council house with a father who has no horizon higher than working in the local factory. Jean Simmons is the mature woman, living in a leafy Surrey house with her stockbroker husband and two children, but desperately unhappy. When the two unlikely lovers meet on a train to London, Whiting ignores the come-on from Susan Penhaligon by saying today I am going to climb Mount Everest, and so begins his charm offensive of the mature woman across London s 1970s landscape. Beautifully written and with expert filming by Geoffrey Unsworth, Say Hello to Yesterday is one of the most insightful British films of its day. SPECIAL FEATURES: Jean Simmons: A Profile, Audio Commentary with director Alvin Rakoff, Theatrical Trailer, Stills Gallery, Other Cinerama Trailers.

It is very much a yesterday movie. Jean Simmons and Leonard Whiting (of Romeo and Juliet 1968 fame) make for an interesting relationship. The age difference between the two is very evident and causes emotional complications for Jean Simmons. Although there IS a a definite attraction for both the outspoken, cheeky young Leonard and the 30 something Miss Simmons, one wishes it could lead to a lasting fun relationship. But back to reality, one must realise the fantasy of love with a much younger man is just that...a fantasy. As her mother said "you'll regret it, whatever you decide...whether you do or whether don't you have an affair with him. I was wishing for a happy outcome, but was left with reality. A really well made movie for its time.

Cute little slice of the end of the swinging 60s. Dated 1970. Wonderful to see so much location filming in London - Kings Rd, Knightsbridge and Victoria Station. Includes commentary with the director and a film historian plus trailers of it and two other similar time-frame films. Simmons and Whiting are entirely believable as a couple who meet in London a la Brief Encounter. Commentary says that Terence Stamp and Michael Caine were considered first. Glad they weren't available - character would have been far too reserved. Film is so much better for Whiting's kooky 'take' on life. I swear the girl in white hat in the train is uncredited Susan George. Written by a Canadian Anglophile who captures perfectly the class system plus British reserve and quirkiness.

This is a fully restored version of the film at a very reasonable price - with director commentary if required. This is not Jean Simmons greatest work, however it is still very good and gives you a look at London in the late 60's early 70's - It's also personal to me as I'm in it at the very beginning as the little boy Nigel and my sister is in the middle as a little girl who falls over - Our biggest acting roles to date.

Delightful glimpse of 1970's Britain. Leonard Whiting and Jean Simmons are superb together.
