A 'lost' kitchensink drama from the early 60s, A Place To Go has been issued on DVD for the very first time by Odeon.

Starring Rita Tushingham and Michael Sarne, A Place To Go is set in the Bethnal Green area of London in 1963, where the housing is undergoing 'slum clearance' and residents are re-located to the newly-built tower blocks. Amid all this upheaval, Ricky Flint is planning to get out, teaming up with the local Mr Big to carry out a robbery at the local cigarette factory – and at the same time, trying to develop a relationship with local girl Cat (Rita Tushingham). Will he get out or will bottle out of the big job?

We've just reviewed the DVD on Cinedelica – see the link below to read it. And if you like what you read, it's available to buy in February for around £7.
