A Matter of Choice Reviews:

Two young lads, Mike (Malcolm Gerard) and Tony (Michael Davis), go for a night out in London in find of girls. Meanwhile the pretty young wife of a middle aged, wealthy businessman named Charles Grant, Lisa (Jeanne Moody), is having an affair with John Crighton (Anthony Steel). He would like Lisa to divorce her husband and marry him but she is keen on the nice life that her husband provides with his wealth and insists that their affair could continue to be secret. Meanwhile, Mike and Tony cross swords with a police constable when a vending machine swallows Tony's two bob. He hits it violently in a vain attempt to receive his cash back but when the PC tries to restrain him, Tony accidentally pushes in in front of a passing vehicle drove by Lisa with John in the passenger seat. The lads flee with John in pursuit but in panic Tony throws a brick at their pursuer knocking him out. They hide the body and themselves in a garage, which happens to be left unlocked. In other strange twist of fate that garage happens to belong to Charles Grant, Lisa's husband! Mike and Tony debate about what to do about the unconscious John while Lisa gives a statement to the police but lies about her lover's involvement stating that he was a finished stranger who came from the another side of the road and only mentions Mike and Tony who ran off. Mike and Tony test the telephone inside the house to call an ambulance with the view of making a run for it afterwards but things are further complicated when Charles comes home. He parks his vehicle in front of the garage door therefore blocking their proposed escape route. In a state of dread, the pair hide in a closet and not long after Lisa arrives home to her husband. Eventually the ambulance turns up and an understandably bewildered Charles shows the paramedics into his garage where they search Crighton unconscious. It transpires that he is a diabetic who has gone into a coma and will die if they cannot receive a dose of Insulin to him in time. Charles suspects that his wife knows the boy as he detects a glimmer of recognition in her face. When the paramedics have taken Crighton away and the couple have gone to bed, Mike and Tony attempt to escape through the front door but set off the burglar alarm. Charles apprehends them and sends for the police and the two lads have no option but to come clean. It turns out that the PC was not seriously harm but Charles asks them a question, "Did you specifically see the boy receive out of my wife's vehicle or is it possible that he came from behind?". Due to their panic at the time the lads are not sure and accept that it is possible. Obviously Lisa is relieved as her involvement with Crighton looks set to remain secret. But other cruel twist of fate is about to occur with devastating consequences...An interesting second detail from writer-director Vernon Sewell that has a bit of a chequered history. The movie had its fair share of production issues and was shelved for three years before it got a brief showing in a several cinemas but it sank without trace. It turned up on TV a several times during the eighties but saw the light of day again in 2009 when it was given a DVD release paired with Charles Saunders' crime drama, Jungle Road (1961).Despite the film's chequered history and long absence it emerges as a neat programmer, which is slightly above the standard of your average b-pic. For once it now does what it tells on the can as it really does turn out to be a matter of choice for the main characters. The movie is basically a minor moral fable about human beings and the choices in life we sometimes have to create and that whatever decision we choose, right or wrong, we have to face the consequences. The most interesting hero in the movie is Lisa (played by Jeanne Moody) who wants her lover, John Crighton, but also wants to hold her wealthy husband since he keeps her in the lifestyle to which she has become accustomed. John neatly sums it up when he tells to her "You wish the greatest of both worlds" during one of their secret rendezvous at his flat. But through the circumstances that unravel she ultimately ends up losing everything. The movie may not be anything groundbreaking but it certainly is engaging, which is something rare in second features. The acting may not be exactly inspiring but everybody plays their part more than adequately and the movie is directed with pace by Vernon Sewell.


A MATTER OF CHOICE is an interesting piece of social drama mixed with more traditional crime and thriller aspects which viewers of British B-cinema will be used to. It's directed by the hard-working Vernon Sewell and says an atypical storyline about a couple of skirt-chasing young boys whose lives fatefully cross with those of an adulterous couple one night. The ponderous narration at the film's opening alerts us to the fact that this is a morality piece, exploring how a single trivial decision can lead unknowingly into disaster.The trouble with the movie is that it's very slowly paced and the main plot elements don't occur until half the film has elapsed. The viewer is saddled with the two youths for much of the running time and they don't create for much in the method of company, stuck in the same type of superficial rut as the characters in THE DAMNED, BEAT GIRL, THE SYSTEM, and a dozen another related works of social commentary released during the era.The second half contains the police investigation and is more involved. There's a great role for Ballard Berkeley, for once cast vs kind as a cuckolded husband. Anthony Steel (ALBERT, R. N.) does well as the adulterer too. The ending is solid, but doesn't feel of much consequence really, and the entire thing has dated somewhat since release. As such, A MATTER OF CHOICE is a mildly interesting curio, nothing more.


AMOC is other of those low-budget 1960s black-and-white movies that I enjoy, though unlike others accessible on "movie channels", there were hardly any nostalgic shots of contemporary London.It gets off to a slow begin with lots of talking (but some period atmosphere), and I started to fidget and wonder where it was leading. Then it got better, as the two lads found themselves getting into more and more trouble. Early in the film, they came across as obnoxious (somewhat impoverished "Hooray Henrys"), but I started to feel just a tiny sympathy for their predicament. (One of them remarks ruefully that the woman who stood him up was "only 15", an attitude that might outrage society today but back in the 1960s was not that exceptional.) And the method the movie ends means they will still be in deep problem - something that viewers are left to realise for themselves.I wonder what Anthony Steele thought about "starring" in this modest movie after being a major name in the 1950s? He has less of a speaking role than half-a-dozen of the another actors and spends some screen-time unconscious.I'm glad that after my early doubts I persevered with watching this film.
