Containing the only Lengthy Television Interview with Joe Orton
20 February 2016 | by l_rawjalaurenceSee all my reviews

Saturday night television in the late Sixties always had a chat show: Simon Dee on the BBC, Eamonn Andrews on ABC (aka ITV). In this live recording Andrews talks to Bernard Braden, Barbara Kelly, Eva Gabor and Joe Orton.

The style seems a little creaky now, with cumbersome television camera masking a studio audience, and the sound of audible coughing from the guests. Braden smokes throughout and gets embarrassed when asked to comment on wife Barbara Kelly's best qualities. The subject-matter - marriage and its disadvantages - seems a bit rich in light of Orton's sexuality.

For television historians, the show offers the longest record of Orton being interviewed, only five months before he was battered to death with a hammer by his lover Kenneth Halliwell. Orton comes across as incredibly self-assured - someone who liked to shock and reveled in the offense caused. Andrews seems vaguely offended by the story of Orton's defacing library books and being jailed for it. The discussion about marriage passes Orton by; it is the kind of subject that this joyously anarchic personality deems irrelevant.
