  • The Amazing Mr Blunden (1972)

    Starred Lynn Frederick & Laurence Naismith as Mr Blunden , and Lionel Jeffries directs it with evocative nature , as good or better than The Railway Children , perhaps . If you like ghost stories in the Edwardian period its a keeper .

    Contrast Diana Dors in this film and in Tread Softly Stranger earlier in her career. Not all the difference was due to makeup and a fat-suit.

    I remember my English teacher reading The Ghosts (Antonia Barber's original novel on which the film is based) to us at school in the early 70s, so probably not long after the film came out, and I was captivated by the story. I saw the film later - I could never decide who I fancied more: Rosalyn Landor or Lynne Frederick. I don't count Madeline Smith who was rather simpering, sickly-sweet, out of the same mould as Lysette Anthony.

      I prefer this to The Railway Children.
