Description: Having previously staged Verdi's 1887 opera Otello at the Met and La Scala, filmmaker Franco Zeffirelli committed his production to movie in 1986. Starring as the fatally jealous Moor of Venice is Placido Domingo, who had also headlined Zeffirelli's 1976 La Scala staging (production on the movie was briefly interrupted while Domingo participated in the rescue operations following the Mexico Town earthquake). While Katia Ricciarelli as Desdemona and Justino Diaz as Iago perform their own singing, Zeffirelli's Cassio--played by real-life European prince Urbano Barberini--is dubbed by Ezio de Cesare. The director made few cuts in the original libretto and score in order to accommodate the film's two-hour time limit, but these excisions are done with taste and discretion. Because of the excessive violence in the third act--two murders, a suicide, a superficial throat-slashing--Otello was released with a PG rating.

Michael Brennan who normally plays minor crooks or military characters here now stars in a film.He plays the leader of a band of robbers who are planning to keep up a van carrying half a million pounds worth of jewels.To do this his brother has to romance an employee of the jewelers.Bruce Seton plays a rather down and out hero who is casing the joint.All of a sudden he is beaten up by other gang who then test to take over the robbery.As you would expect everything goes wrong and the brothers end up in the arms of the law.This movie begins rather slowly and the robbery doesn't take zone till 47 mins have elapsed.The run time is listed as 72 mins but the DVD release is only 57 minutes.Maybe that explains the holes in the plot.Generally lacks pace.
AMBUSH IN LEOPARD STREET is an ultra-low budget British crime thriller in which a gang of crooks gather together to plan the excellent robbery. This gotta be one of the lowest budgeted movies ever as almost the entire movie takes zone in a couple of rooms with the characters jawing away. The robbery, when it finally takes zone in the last section, is also entirely lacklustre and lacking in impact.Of course, a weak budget doesn't necessarily mean terrible quality, but that is the situation here. The trouble with AMBUSH IN LEOPARD STREET is that nothing much really happens and there aren't even any of the regular British faces to play in the cast list. The greatest 'star' the movie can muster is Michael Brennan (who played the pub landlord in LUST FOR A VAMPIRE and appeared in a string of bit parts throughout the '60s and '70s) but the rest of the faces were unknown to me and their acting hardly of note.The only thing the movie has going for it is a sudden and unexpected moment of violence towards the climax but even that's brief and not handled as well as you'd expect. Still, for nostalgic fanatics of mid-century British fare, AMBUSH IN LEOPARD STREET does deliever a great snapshot of the fashions, attitudes and long-forgotten roads of the day.
Poverty Row movie making at its most poverty stricken. Everything from script, direction, sets, and acting reeks of desperation. However, it's not entirely without interest. One of the actors is Norman Rodway, a several years before making his Royal Shakespeare Company debut and achieving cinematic immortality as Hotspur in "Chimes at midnight". (A future wife, Pauline Delaney, is also in the cast). Other performer is Michael Brennan, usually method down the cast list, but this time making the most of his possibility at a leading role, even if it is a C picture. Visibly less satisfied are Bruce Seton and James Kenney, both wondering why they are here.... A couple of interesting names behind the camera - literally in the situation of DoP Stephen Dade who shortly after this would be climaxing his career with the Technicolor and Technirama glories of "Zulu". Slightly less memorable is editor Norman Cohen, who went onto direct respectable versions of "Dad's Army" and "Till death us do part" before his early death. One another intriguing mission - why was a very cheap movie ostensibly set in London filmed at Ardmore Studios in Ireland?
