RMG 303 – A Warm December (1973)

December 7, 2022

On this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew is geeking out over A Warm December (1973) and

  • cinematic stereotypes
  • how the movie fools you
  • good characters & story
  • Sidney Poitier
  • and much, much more!


A new city, a new life… Dr. Matt Younger has a lot to look forward to during his stay in London. As it turns out, events exceed his hopes. This lonely American widower receives a new chance at love.

Sidney Poitier stars on both sides of the camera, playing Younger and directing this tender story of unexpected love and the shadow that hangs over it. Willowy Esther Anderson portrays Catherine, a stranger who seeks Younger’s help in eluding a man, and afterward mysteriously slips away. Younger is intrigued. Why is someone stalking her? What is the connection between her and the man with the scarred face? The answers, like the romantic feelings between Younger and Catherine, unfold bit by bit.

Filmed largely in and around glorious London, A Warm December becomes a travelogue of two hearts. And like many heartrending movie romances, it reminds us that in love, as in life itself, there is inevitably loss.
