TOP 500 REVIEWERon 3 May 2017
This is an enjoyable - if ultimately forgettable - film, about a man who has an affair. It's a straightforward enough plot, made rather tantalising as the affair involves an underage girl. Indeed, the tag line of the movie was "Is 15 and a half too young for a girl?" Aside from this, the story is rather mundane. Nonetheless, the acting is excellent - and this results in an entertaining film. The lead actor, Tom Bell, plays Len, a lighting technician for a theatrical company - and it's while at work that he meets schoolgirl Val (played by the beautiful Olivia Hussey). The two enjoy a whirlwind romance, yet throughout the affair Len remains firmly in love with his wife Joy (played by Judy Carne). It's clear that Len is struggling to come to terms with his adulterous behaviour. Similarly, Val is conflicted by her feelings for Len while also not wanting to cause problems for anyone else. Throughout, Joy is apparently blissfully unaware of what's going on ... or at least pretends to be so.

This is a well-packaged and well-presented item, by BFI. Both a Blu-ray and a DVD version of the film are included, and there are a host of bonus features. Additionally, there's a glossy booklet describing the production of the film, as well as offering reflections of the movie by those involved in its making.

As a lighthearted film, featuring an excellent cast, this is definitely worth watching. Okay, it's somewhat dated - but this adds a certain charm the film.

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.

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.

Well acted film that tackles a difficult subject matter in a tasteful, intelligent and sophisticated way that probably wouldn't be achievable or even allowed today and this was almost 50 years ago.
It has a few bits of good location footage from the time (1969) and the picture quality is ok but not exactly in-camera negative quality.
The film itself is a little on the slow side and lacks any real drama resulting from the situation. I'd give it 7 out of 10.

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 should leave you, at the very least, entertained. Gerry O'Hara, thank you!
