Hussy (Blu-ray)

We no longer offer this title for sale, this listing is here for reference. Screen Archives still carries a wide selection of Twilight Time titles.
An evocative, rougher-edged, British-flavored throwback to 1940s roadhouse melodramas about bruised, wary lovers out to escape dubious pasts, Hussy (1980) stars the always terrific Helen Mirren as a veteran hooker based out of a tawdry London cabaret and movie-debuting John Shea as the backstage technician who falls for her. Their breakaway future together becomes clouded by the unexpected and simultaneous return of her criminal ex-lover (Paul Angelis) and his former partner in smuggling (Murray Salem), each bringing danger and potential disaster. It’s also the first film of writer/director – and thriller specialist – Matthew Chapman (Strangers Kiss, Heart of Midnight, The Ledge).
