Play ConnectionsOthello (derivative)


The Othello story modernized and grafted on to a typical back-stage show business plot. Iago is played by Patrick McGoohan, who later directed the 1973 Catch My Soul (466), which appropriated Othello into the world of rock just as All Night Long put it in the context of jazz. The cast was a mix of jazz musicians and well-known actors such as Keith Michell.
