It’s fair to say that there’s not a great deal of plot in Morning Star, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Instead its a traditional quest story which is stripped down to the bare minimum and then given a supernatural slant.

Despite being second billed here, George Hilton really only has a minor role as a British Lieutenant. The main purpose of his character is to act as a humanising force to the hero, Giorgio (Frederick Stafford).
