British Kitchen Sink Dramas

it was said recently that Look Back In Anger changed film drama forever, certainly in Britain. this was a new kind of film with gritty realism. the film starred Richard Burton, Mary Ure and Claire Bloom. Burton was a frustrated barrow boy who beat his wife Ure and bedded Bloom after his marriage spl...

it's funny you should mention the fact that Paul and Ringo wouldn't want to relive Let it Be. at the weekend i was watching a British chat show with host Johnathon Ross, his guest was Ringo. they talked about the scene in the film where they performed on the roof and how Ringo was the only one prati...

thanks for your kind welcome. they say it's a small world Brechin is only about 20 miles from where i stay. i drive there often. you maybe remember when Dundee United were one of the best football teams in Europe. it's not the case now i'm afraid though they're playing better these days. i've often ...

Help, it's been A Hard Days Night

it's almost a crying shame The Beatles did only did 4 films. i discount Yellow Submarine because other actors like Bringing Up Appearences star Geoffrey Hughes played the fab four, though adittedly the boys still did the vocals i think the first film A Hard Day's Night was their best. it was a ficti...

Roger Moore, a career of playing action heros

Roger Moore first came to Hollywood in the early to mid 1950s. his first and only Broadway play flopped, but the fact he was married at the time to the older international caberet star Dorothy Squires probably got him started at MGM he did a series of movies most of which were at best moderatly succ...

I wanted to contact Paul Merton to ask him a question regarding his book and series. in Safety Last he seems to be suggesting that Harold Llyod did all his own stunts. however, i think it was the Brit doc series Hollywood, shown in the 80s, a stuntman said he actually did the high rise stuff, while ...

look under this section and musicals i sometimes worry that i will talk about stars people in America won't have heard of. sometimes i find it impossible to avoid. for example i know Julie Walters is big in America, but a comic actress called Victoria Wood isn't. the thing there is the two women are...

I think too Hayley is better known for her American movies than her British in the States. That's a pity because Tiger Bay and Whistle Down The Wind are IMO far and away her best films. it's also sad that Hayley's latest tv series set on a South African game farm called Wild At Heart isn't seen in A...

for me the best leading ladies are Edna and Claire. i think Claire somewhat resembled Oona O'Neil. if fact Charlie's 4th wife doubled for the young English actress in Limelight for a longshot. I think it's great that Claire could play leading lady to Chaplin in 1952 and yet could play oppisite Billy...

I thought Elvis had the potential to be a better all-round entertainer than Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. not only did i think he was a god actor, he could also handle fight scenes and was ideal for Flaming Star and Charro. i thought to that King Croele is right up there with Judy's A Star Is Born ...

Stagecaoch and Bus Stop Anne. it's been said that Ringo wasn't aware of Dallas' past, but i think he was and still loved her. still he was clearly inexperieced in love after being in prison since he was 17. Don Murray's Beau was both. While Marilyn's Cherie wasn't a dance hall girl like Claire Trevo...
