| Old Favourite Actors
Lee Patterson as Turner and Lyndon Brook as Johnny Sanderson in "Reach for the Sky" (1956), Liam Redmond as an Irish immigrant in "A Night to Remember (1958), Paul Witsun Jones in "The Gordon Honour" (1954) BBC tv childrens hour serial, Diane Cilento in "The Little Hut" (1953) with Kenneth More; are just some of the actors I recognised from my childhood.Recently there is a new tv channel 81 in the London area called "Talking Pictures" which I increasingly find myself watching as they show the old films I relish and which remind me of my youth ( I am now 72).

No spoilers I promise but you must always remember there was a film code which producers had to abide by in films like "Passing Strangers (1954), which meant characters could not profit from their mis-deeds.Lee Paterson as Chick a US deserter in the UK, elicits our sympathy when he falls in love with the attractive blonde Diane Cilento as Jill (Sean Connery's ex-missus).Another fascinating aspect of these old films is seeing cars on the street I remember in the 1950s.I believe I am one of the first users to comment on this film but don't worry "Talking Pictures" are bound to repeat it in the not too distant future.
