Till Death Us Do Part

is a 1969 British comedy film directed by Norman Cohen, written by Johnny Speight, and starring Warren Mitchell and Dandy Nichols. It was based on the BBC television series of the same name. Speight was the creator of the television version. The gambar hidup was considered successful enough at the box office that a sequel,
The Alf Garnett Mitos, followed in 1972.[2]



The film begins in September 1939 shortly before World War II begins. Alf Garnett, a dockyard worker, and his wife Else have been married for only a few weeks, and are already weary of one another. Alf gets called up for military duty but is turned down because he’s in a reserved occupation. The film depicts their lives during the London Blitz. Else eventually gets pregnant to Alf and Else’s shock, and they have a baby daughter, Rita, in 1942. The war ends in 1945 with a huge street party and Alf, characteristically, gets drunk.

Midway through the film it advances from the end of World War II to the 1966 General Election. Rita is now a young woman and engaged to Mike Rawlins, a long-haired layabout from Liverpool. Alf dislikes him because of his support for the Labour Party. Mike and Rita marry in a Catholic church, further angering Alf. At the wedding supper he fights with Mike’s family. But Alf and Mike grow a bit closer, attending the 1966 FIFA World Cup Final together.

The film ends in 1968 with the family moving to a new tower block in Essex after their East End neighbourhood street is demolished.
