    Like everyone else, I'm also relieved that John is well and hope he'll return soon


    Daily Mirror preview for '(ITV) Play of the Week' The Climbers, 8th August 1966

    Mr. Moxey directed daughter Gillian in this play, which thankfully exists in the archives:


    A DOUBLE-LIFE problem faced Gillian Moxey during the making of tonight's Play of the Week, "The Climbers" (ITV, 9.40). While remembering her lines as the teenage daughter of a surburban family she had to try to forget she was the real-life daughter of the play's director, John Moxey.

    At her parents' home in Staines, Middlesex, Gillian, 23, told me: "It was essential for discipline while we were making the play that I forgot that it was Daddy telling me what to do. But he is so easy to work with that it all went very well."

    Gillian has worked with her father once before - playing a servant in the ATV play "The Corsican Brothers". She has been training as an actress for only three years and is still attending drama school.


    Role

    "I got the role in 'Play of the Week' because the description of the girl in the script is almost exactly me", she said. The Climbers, which is about "keeping up with the Joneses", was written by Gerry Jones. Lee Montague and Shelagh Fraser play Mr. and Mrs. Black, a couple with all the material comforts of life. Richard Pearson and Jane Hylton are their neighbours, Mr. and Mrs. Agar.


    The IMDb have no details AT ALL for The Climbers, or even a profile for Gillian Moxey. I will put that right immediately by copying information from that week's TVTimes. The following month, Jane Hylton was in an episode of Blackmail called Care and Protection, again directed by John Moxey and written by Doris Lessing. Never knew she worked for British TV. Unfortunately this is lost, like most of the series. I heard Gerald Harper refer to that production of The Corsican Brothers just a few days ago, during his DVD commentary for Adam Adamant Lives!.

    Something else I didn't know is that John remade the classic film noir Laura for American TV, featuring George Sanders as Waldo Lydecker!

    Pleased to say that Gillian now has an IMDb profile thanks to my surprise discovery.

    A Happy Birthday to John. Another capture from his last episode of The Baron, Epitaph for a Hero (filmed October 1965):



    L-R: My beloved Patricia Haines, Steve Forrest (The Baron), Nosher Powell and Artro Morris in the scene where they break into a museum.

    I wonder if this was Mr Moxey's cat?




    But good detective work Cornershop and I agree the lovely Patricia was much underrated,one of my favourite Avengers' episode is with her and Freddie Jones. Its probably herecy to say it but I enjoyed them better than the regular leads on that show.

    Last year was the first time I had ever heard of the Edgar Wallace program. It turned up when I did a web search of Jeremy Kemp. I bought a dvd, and was impressed. It reminded me of our Alfred Hitchcock Presents. But the knockout episode was without question, The Face of a Stranger. The performances, the irony, the neat movement from one scene to the other. And that clip of Kemp semi-sprinting up the staircase with geometric design. And what a pleasant surprise to see an old favorite from Upstairs Downstairs appear at the door. And you stop wondering about how it was that this blind woman couldn't hear and feel the difference between the men. And then, boom! I know this will sound like a ridiculous question, but why does the stranger ask Vincent for directions when he gets to London? I often suspected that it just might be a cameo, like Hitchcock turning up on the bus. Would anyone know? Or is it just part of the motif?

    Ah-the delightful Pat Haines-so memorable in "The Night Caller" (1965)

    I miss John's presence in the forum and he still hasn't logged in since his last post on 11-10-12. I don't "do" Facebook so I don't know if he's still OK or not.... anyone know?

    Shirl, I have just had a look on Facebook, there is a brief biography on him, but it was obviously not set up by John, so no news on him I'm afraid.

    Batman, please tell Mr. Moxey that my favorite Edgar Wallace is Face of a Stranger. I came to that series very, very late (2012.) The beauty of the art form is that it can be preserved, the fragility is that it sometimes isn't. Thanks to the people who saw to it that I could see it.

    Excellent news, that he is still doing OK. Wish him well. I corresponded with him through this site some time ago, and hoped he was OK. kelp

    Happy Birthday, John. Wonderful to have you back. Sadly, Artro Morris who featured in last year's birthday post, died only two weeks ago.

    Fantastic finds at The Stage Archive

    From the 22nd January 1959 edition:



    Your director credit is missing from the IMDb's page for Television Playhouse
    The Fourposter, broadcast 18th April 1958 (Don't worry, I'll sort that out!):



    Joint Ventures

    Mai Zetterling and Dennis Price also appeared in The Bad Lord Byron, The Lost
    People
    (both 1949), Tall Headlines (1952), and Piccadilly Third Stop (1960).


    To end, your last Play of the Week, Come Laughing Home, transmitted 20th December 1966:
