Coming to DVD and Blu-ray: That Kind of Girl (1963)


Remember All The Right Noises? Well, a second Gerry O’Hara movie is part of the next wave of BFI/Flipside DVD (and Blu-ray) releases - That Kind of Girl.

In 1960s London, a beautiful continental au pair finds herself wrestling with the affections of an earnest peace-protestor, a dashing young toff and a roguish older man.  But fun and freedom turn to shame and despair when she finds that her naivety has put the health of her lovers, and their partners – including the well-meaning Janet (played by Big Zapper's Linda Marlowe, in her first role) – at risk.

Shot in crisp black and white, and set against a backdrop of smoky jazz clubs, ‘Ban the Bomb’ marches, and 60s London locations, this cautionary tale was the directorial of Gerry O’Hara and as you would expect, comes with plenty of special features:

The People at No. 19 (J.B. Holmes, 1948, 17 mins): an intense and effective melodrama which explores the themes of adultery, sexual hygiene and pregnancy from the perspective of an earlier era.
No Place to Hide (1959, 10 mins): a snapshot of the ‘Ban the Bomb’ march to Aldermaston.
A Sunday in September (1961, 27 mins): a compelling documentary, from the director of Black Beauty, about a nuclear disarmament demonstration in London, with Vanessa Redgrave, Doris Lessing and John Osbourne.
Robert Hartford-Davis interview (1968, 14 mins): That Kind of Girl's producer discusses his film career and production methods.
Extensive illustrated booklet featuring essays from novelist Cathi Unsworth and director Gerry O’Hara.

January 25th is the release date for both the DVD and the Blu-ray disc.
