The Small World of Sammy Lee
The Uncut Gems of early 1960s Brit cinema.
Dir Ken Hughes
With Anthony Newley, Julia Foster, Robert Stephens, Warren Mitchell
Anthony Newley stars in the Uncut Gems of early 1960s Brit cinema. He’s a motormouth nightclub MC whose gambling debts are going to result in two broken legs. Thus we see Sammy run through his complicated life and loves to raise the money. A funny, gritty time capsule of 60s London, the shots of Newley legging it along Wardour Street in 1962 are worth the price of admission alone.
