Hayley Mills recently appeared in a programme talking about this film which made her famous.
She was in an episode of Midsomer Murders.
Time has NOT been kind to her face.

That Sorceror film sucks and the Tangerine Dream soundtrack - I believe their first - is boring as all heaven.

Forrest Tucker was a specialist with these B horror films. I met him when I was 10 years old when my eldest sister 11 years my senior brought him home for Sunday Lunch. He was here at Elstree studios doing the Abominable Snowman, I even went and watched some scenes being shot.

Cape Fear is phenomenal Slinger. The remake is good but not a patch on the menace of the original.

Lots of love here for the Ealing comedies, especially Passport To Pimlico.

Just a little more recently...Broadway Danny Rose.

Kind hearts and coronets

(School for scoundrels, Titfield thunderbolt, Passport to Pimlico etc)


Black and white films (like still photographs) help me to concentrate on the story, old British ones in particular as they are fascinating n terms of social history - relatively empty London streets for one thing).

Also lots of American B&W - Harvey for example
LP12,Ittok,DV10X5,Phono2(twin supply),P50/A40's,LS5,SSC,Rega Ela mk1.
Sony cdp xb930,Alessandro ms1
