1972 BBFC Cert. “X”

Straight on Till Morning

Brenda Thompson is a naive, almost childlike, young Liverpudlian girl, who lives in a dream world in which she is a fantasy princess. Desperate to have a baby, she leaves her home in Liverpool and heads for the bright lights of London in search of a potential father. There, she meets an attractive young man, Peter, who seems to be everything she is hoping for. But all is not as it appears, for he is in reality a dangerous, psychopathic murderer!
