  • Sighted: Ah There You Are!

    More SWORD OF FREEDOM and Michael Reed takes over as DP on "The Duke" and so I don't know if it's the film print or his choice of lighting that has this as a very dark episode:

    So dark indeed that series semi-regular Kenneth Hyde gets no credit for his couple of scenes as Machiavelli

    Martin Benson is not as convincing a villain as Alan Wheatley in THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD or Willoughby Goddard in WILLIAM TELL. Here he tries to enlist his councillors into his latest daft scheme, John More on the left looking particularly gloomy about it all

    Although I've tried to lighten it, he's not as gloomy as Richard Pasco's guard here, who I think is Peter Diamond, and is about to have a sword fight with Martin.

    Still at a table, though a few centuries later:

    John More attending a very accurate Burns Supper shown in DR. FINLAY'S CASEBOOK "The Immortal Memory", ably rendered by Andrew Cruickshank. Just a pity the BBC decided to transmit the episode in June 1965 instead of January.

      Hello Gerald,
      What a lovely new site!
      So to kick off here's Walter Henry as a German Nato Officer in Arrivederci Baby (1966), which I watched yesterday evening.

          Quite right Gerald. Walter is so prominent in this scene, I failed to notice Roy.

            "The Eye of the Artist" is tested in SWORD OF FREEDOM when Martin Benson's agents John Carson and Alex Scott try to track down a republican:

            John Wilder is another onlooker, but in the wrong direction. Only one of Edmund Boredom's artistic eyes is visible here.

              Good Evening

              Mary Heston here, a new member to Britmovies and a very happy lady too as this is my first post. I tried registering on the old site but my PC couldn't read the image verification for some reason. Anyway I was watching Superman ( the first Christopher Reeve one) and spotted Aiden Harrington through the lens of Jimmy Olsen's camera during the first scene at the Daily Planet. He gets a big close up and was wondering if anyone had noticed this before.

                    And to Giovanni the chef, played by Charles Rayford. The guards at the door, who later get a fight scene, are a beardless Charlie Price and a moustache-less Joe Wadham

                    A gathering of Florence's finest artists, organised by Edmund Boredom and Adrienne Corri, with Del Watson about to head out to grab a beard, as he's wearing one for the rest of the episode.

                      At the base of the tower, whining Patrick Troughton joins in, along with Ned Lynch, Roland Bartrop and a beaming Pat Halpin. Ned must have a twin because while he's up the tower, he's also in the crowd down below

                      Talking of twins, here's the one Charlie Price has, though he's borrowed Del Watson's stick-on beard. Charlie reverts to being a clean-shaved guard shortly after, when Frank Maher returns for a couple of fights with him

                      The lads in the tower may be starving, but at least Kenneth Hyde, who is credited this time, has had a nice meal with Martin, all served up by Cyril Kent.

                      Quite a busy, extra-filled episode this time, directed by Terence Fisher.

                      I've split this duplicate post from Britmovie into two as the maximum number of images per post (including smilies) is five today. Previously I could only get one image per post and thereafter four. Eleven is the maximum on the original Britmovie.

                        I mean I think it's Aiden Harrington not I think it's Superman. Stone me, I'm a big fan of the film.

                          The circle in the middle of the frame represents the eye of Jimmy Olsen's camera by the way. Just in case anyone was wondering.
