    Another Hitchcock now...Dial M For Murder, 1954. starring Ray Milland, Grace Kelly, Robert Cummings, Anthony Dawson, and John Williams.





    The film was filmed in 3d although it crashed in that format and was hastily changed to the 2d version where it did well. John Williams as the inspector stole the film.

    Blithe Spirit, 1945. Directed by David Lean. The screenplay by Lean, cinematographer Ronald Neame and associate producer Anthony Havelock-Allan is based on producer Nol Coward's 1941 play of the same name, the title of which is derived from the line "Hail to thee, blithe Spirit! Bird thou never wert" in the poem "To a Skylark" by Percy Bysshe Shelley.

    Stars Kay Hammond, Rex Harrison, Constance Cummings and Margaret Rutherford.







    Coward had turned down offers from Hollywood to sell the film rights, stating that previous American versions of his plays had been "vulgarized, distorted and ruined". The rights were instead sold to Cineguild, one of the independent companies supported by the Rank Organization. The film was shot in Technicolor and marked Lean's first attempt at directing comedy after working on two straight films In Which We Serve and This Happy Breed, both also written by Nol Coward. The film was shot at Denham Studios in May 1944.

    Nearby houses were used for exteriors: Denham Mount (Charles' and Ruth's home) and Fairway in Cheapside (Madame Arcati's house); some filming was also done at Blacksmith's Lane. One source mentions a third location: "Condomine House, exteriors".

    The play had been a major success, and Coward advised Lean not to jeopardise this with the adaptation, telling him "Just photograph it, dear boy". In spite of this, Lean made a number of changes such as adding exterior scenes, whereas the play had been set entirely in a single room, showing scenes like the car journey to Folkestone which had only been referred to in the play. Perhaps most importantly, the final scene, in which Charles dies and joins his two wives as a spirit, does not occur in the play, which ends with his leaving his house after taunting his former wives, of whom he is now free. Coward objected strenuously to this change, charging Cineguild with having ruined the best play he ever wrote.

    As with most of Coward's work, Blithe Spirit is renowned for its sophisticated dialogue. During an argument with Ruth, Charles declares, "If you're trying to compile an inventory of my sex life, I feel it only fair to warn you that you've omitted several episodes. I shall consult my diary and give you a complete list after lunch." The line, considered extremely risqu by censors, was deleted from the US release

    Turning to a more grim subject now with the Classic British crime drama directed by Richard Fleischer, 10 Rillington Place. Stars Richard Attenborough, Judy Geeson, John Hurt and Pat Heywood.



    The film dramatises the case of British serial killer John Christie, who committed many of his crimes in the titular London terraced house, and the miscarriage of justice involving his neighbour Timothy Evans. Hurt received a BAFTA Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Evans.
    Attenborough really got into the mind of Christie and was most convincing. Horrific yet compelling.

    10 Rillington Place is now a memorial garden and the street rebuilt afaik.


    Now, The Naked City, 1948. American film noir directed by Jules Dassin. Stars Barry Fitzgerald,Howard Duff, Dorothy Hart and Don Taylor.



    Filmed on location on streets of New York in a semi documentary style. It collected 2 Academy Awards and was a big hit.
