A Taste of Honey (1961) Film Review

A Taste of Honey
DIRECTOR: Tony Richardson
 Although he was playing a teenager, gay actor Murray Melvin was almost thirty when he made “A Taste of Honey” with Rita Tushingham. One of the first openly gay actors he worked often with was Tony Richardson and particularly Ken Russell. His most memorable movie scene is the card game in Stanley Kubrick’s “Barry Lyndon” with its natural candlelight and Schubert’s Piano Trio in E Flat. Tony Richardson’s adaptation of the Sheila Delaney play still shines.
Dora Bryan is particularly memorable as Tushingham’s self-centered, and alcoholic mother.
