Re: 2 early Peter Sellers films found

It's a real shame that films that Sellers did with fellow Goons Spike Milligan and Harry Secombe, such as Down Among The Z Men didn't do justice to their iconic radio program The Goon Show, which went onto inspire Monty Python. I remember him as an uknown in Orders Are Orders with future UK stars To...

A Change Of Habit

I'm almost surprised to be writing the Elvis Presley last acting movie A Change Of Habit is an excellent film. It bears in mind what I've been thinking in recent years, that is movie career was on the up, after his IMO mid 60s junk. Though it could be said that Elvis' reputation as a serious actor m...

Re: Three Doctors, a Piper and a Redgrave

Sorry Masa for starting this thread when you posted something earlier. Spoiler It was a bit special, wasn't it? It wasn't Tennent's clone after all, but his real Doctor. It's funny but in Tennent's last storyline, he knew his death was coming, so he went for a joy ride in the Tardis and came back sa...

William Hartnell;Film life before and during Dr. Who

William Hartnell is best known as the first Doctor Who, from 1963 through to 1966. However, like Ward Bond in America, he was a top character actor, who in his 50s became a major tv star. It's funny that Hartnell played the Doctor as an old man, whereas Jon Pertwee at roughly the same age he played ...

Over here there has been a huge build up, incuding a tv movie called An Adventure In Space In Time, starring David Bradley as the first Doctor William Hartnell, Jessica Raine as Verity La...

Diane Keaton;under the radar

When thinking about all time great actresses, I always seem to over look Diane Keaton, but having seen one of her films Baby Boom recently and going by other films I've seen her in, I feel she should be put in the same bracket as the great actresses of both the classic and modern cinema. I'm not sur...
