Shooting of the film version of Robin Maugham’s famous gay novel “The Wrong People” will start early next year. The screenplay has been written by Murray Smith and the film will be made entirely on location in Morocco.
Hollywood star Sal Mineo, who now lives in London, will be directing the film. This is his first appearance on the other side of the camera.
The story of ‘The Wrong People’ tells of a rich gay living in Tangiers, who uses his influence on a timid, closeted schoolteacher to procure him a boy from the approved school at which he teaches.
If the screenplay does not differ too much from the original, it should make for an interesting movie and give our censor of celluloid a few headaches.
