Future Icon of the silver screen – Felicity Jones


Sticking my neck out here, but why not.

Felicity Jones’ performance in “Flashbacks Of A Fool”, however brief, was stunning, a true tour de force. Her role in the neglected tv series “Cape Wrath” was crucial, and “Cemetery Junction” was dull outside of her appearances.

She will be around on the film and theatre scene for decades. Trust me.

All Men Are Evil (and Daddy that’s you)


Oh how I need to see this movie – “Odds Against Tomorrow”

The stunning Harry Belafonte, Shelley Winters, Robert Ryan, Ed Begley and more in a classic (if not the classic) heist gone wrong movie.

Apparently available in bits on youtube but I’m getting it here – a bit of a faff but worth the effort.
