Another Buthcers film for me : Peter Maxwell's 1958 effort Blind Spot, Robert Mackenzie plays a blinded American serviceman in England who stumbles upon a murder and a smuggling racket.
It nefer ceases to amaze me at the number of blind people in films who can regainb their sight this is pretty poor and poverty row even by Butcvers standards, Mr MacKenzie shows why according to IMDB he only made three films- he can't act for toffee and his leading lady is little better, saving graces partially come from Gordon Jackson and in an early role Michael Caine.
Another for the b movie completists here.
Gaolbreak (1962). Tobacconist by day and criminal mastermind by night Peter Reynolds has a big job planned but his safe-breaker is inside. A middling Butchers B effort where naturally the plot becomes unnecessarily convoluted, but also manages to be quite dull.
A modern film for me last night : Roland Emerich's Anonymous in which the director seeks to convince us that Shakespeare didn't write the 37 plays etc after all and it was really the Earl of Oxford in the shape of Rhys Ifans , a premise I wasn't convinced by- the film is a bit of a curate's egg fine in parts but overall disappointing and too long
Praise though for Mr Ifans who was easily the best thing about the film
Wendy Hiller & Roger Livesey in Powell & Pressburger's "I Know Where I'm Going"....
Very good scenery and especially enjoyed the whirlpool scene. Instantly recognised Finlay Currie and John Laurie.
Was overall quite impressed by only my second P&P.....
Re Anonymous it could only have been more bonkers if it revealed the ghost of Martin Luther was responsible for the Bard's work
It does look absolutely fantastic though, the best recreation of Shakesperean London I've seen. And we all know the Queen was naughtier than she let on, especially after she met the Doctor...
