  • Trying to follow the tale of The Tale of Five Cities (1951) when it's really a bit of a tedious one about Bonar Colleano:

ID:	5954 IMDb has Ivan Craig down for an unattributed uncredited role and this might be him, although unlike the studios scenes which were filmed at Riverside and Nettlefold Studios, this is a location scene shot in Rome.

          • It's very deflating to watch The Balloon Goes Up (1942) and the long and the short of it is:

            Ethel Revnell and Gracie West, who are attempting to get into the WAAFs so that they can go to the evening dance, but first have to encounter and put the wind up officer Grace Arnold

            Then dressed as schoolgirls, they encounter another officer, this time P.C. Robert Brooks Turner, who looks understandably flatulent at being in this film.

                      • Just noted this morning that dissolute's Avengers page now redirects to a "this account is suspended" page. Anyone know what happened? I hope it's not a copyright issue, as that would be asinine, especially as it was such a fine site and would probably do a lot ot generate interest in the show.

                          Stupid error in the migration to a new host (my old host sold all their clients). All fixed now.

                          • Good ot know; the phrasing had me worried! Would hate to see such a well done site disappear. . .

                            • Thanks Dave, me too! I keep a full backup on dropbox but I can't imagine it would be fun to use from there.

                              • What Every Woman Wants (1962) is one of Danzigers last films, it is a comedy directed by Ernest Morris. A successful marriage guidance councillor Philip Goodwin (William Fox) effortlessly puts warring clients back on track, unfortunately his ideal for marriage does not work for his own wife Jean (Hy Hazell) who is bored, she confides in her daughter Elizabeth who tells her Sunday paper journalist husband Tom (Dennis Lotis) about her parents problems during a visit to the local pub, earwigging is scandal paper journalist Chadwick (Andrew Faulds). Jean rebels and spends time with family friend and philanderer George Barker (Guy Middleton, the rest of the film shows ups and downs of the two couples generally manipulated by Chadwick keeping his scoop going until they all reconcile at the end.
