    Dead of Night is a 1945 black and white British anthology horror film, made by Ealing Studios. The individual segments were directed by Alberto Cavalcanti, Charles Crichton, Basil Dearden and Robert Hamer. It stars Mervyn Johns, Googie Withers, Sally Ann Howes and Michael Redgrave. The film is best remembered for the concluding story featuring Redgrave and an insane ventriloquist's malevolent dummy.





    Dead of Night is a rare British horror film of the 1940s; horror films were banned from production in Britain during the war. It had an influence on subsequent British films in the genre. Both of John Baines' stories were reused for later films and the possessed ventriloquist dummy episode was adapted into the pilot episode of the long-running CBS radio series Escape.

    While primarily in the horror genre, there are shades of the comedy that would make the studio's name.

    The Michael Redgrave part with Hugo the dummy, is one of the few really creepy things I've seen in film. It was brilliantly done.

    YUP, a classic.

    there are two short storys horror from not sure; 50' to 70's i guess that i cannot find. one was an antique mirror or painting that took person to another place, and the other was a new caretaker of a home for elderly who treated them badly for profit and the inmates boxed him into his office or something like that.

    To guard against leaks that had prefigured Spock's death during production of The Wrath of Khan, Paramount took precautions to secure the sets. Set designer Cameron Birnie noted that the production's security was highly unusual; sets were built out of sequence and the crew given only as many pages as they needed to fabricate each locale. Security guards checked the picture identification cards of production staff. Any mention of the production was removed from stationery and documents, and "Trois" (three, in French) was written as a code word. Offices and workshops were bereft of identifying signage, with doors double-locked for extra protection. The Search for Spock's scripts were chemically treated so that copies could be traced to the original; as a further canary trap, subtle changes in wording distinguished each copy. Nimoy's name never appeared on call sheets, and Spock was referred to in the script as "Nacluv" (Vulcan spelled backwards). Despite the precautions, word of the Enterprise's destruction leaked out before the film's release.
    When my mum watched "The Wrath of Khan", she had a bit of a thing for Khan. I told her that wasn't his real chest, but she didn't care. She had a strange taste in men, which included Max McGill (Man in a Suitcase) and DCI Jack Meadows from the early "Bill" series. Oh and Bogey too, which is fair enough.

    When Eastwood first heard of the book being turned into a film, he liked the basic plot and the characters, but disliked that most of those he considered interesting were killed off. He requested that Goldman make sure that "everyone the audience likes doesn't get killed off."
    Can't believe I've never seen this (maybe at the weekend). Not a single actor there that I don't like.

    Actually it was. Montalban was tough as nails in real life apparently, the rest of the cast and the director treated him with kid gloves.

    The antique mirror story is in 'Dead of Night'? The main character starts to see the reflection of a different room to his own.

    And I think your second reference may be a story called 'Blind Alleys' from 'Tales From The Crypt', a 1972 horror anthology.
