  • Columbia rareties on TPTV

    I am surprised nobody has mentioned the appearances of the rare Jazzboat and the hitherto completely elusive The Ugly Duckling on Talking Pictures TV in early October. Let's hope that Jazzboat will be in its correct 2.35:1 ratio and that In The Nick will follow.

    I just noticed that on the TPTV listings. I never thought I'd see those!

      IDOL ON PARADE was not shown in Scope (just 16:9) so I would not raise your hopes that JAZZBOAT or IN THE NICK will be shown in Scope either.

        'Let's Get Married' would complete the trio of films made by Newley and Winters one after the other at M-G-M British Studios in the latter months of 1959.

        Looking forward to seeing 'The Ugly Duckling' for the first time.

          What about 'In the Nick' ? (Newley, Booth, Aubrey)

        I can’t believe that Talking Pictures have found The Ugly Duckling!! I’ve been trying to get a copy for years, never found one.

        Remember seeing it when it was first released. I think it was at The New Victoria. Looking forward to seeing it again!

            I remember seeing The Ugly Duckling at the ABC Golders Green.Made when Bernard Bresslaw was a star because of The Army Game.His catchphrase was He's a nutcase.
            Always remember it but haven't seen it since.
            When I was a ref i booked his son Mark for for time wasting when he was a goalkeeper

                  It was, or "I only Arsked" to be more precise.

                  The catchphrase originated in "The Army Game" tv series. He later starred in a film titled "I only Arsked" and issued a record with the same name.

                    Indeed, the film was made by Hammer (!). I wonder why they didn't use the title of the TV show, especially as the film was made in co-operation with Granada. The same thing happened when a film spin off of Jimmy Edwards' TV series Whack-O was made, the film was called Bottoms Up (and for that matter the spin off of The Larkins was called Inn For Trouble). They didn't make that mistake when the spate of TV spin offs in the seventies were made.
