    I was debating whether to continue this series because of lack of interest, but judging from the amount of views in the last few days I guess I'm wrong.

    Stephen

    Please don’t stop, the material you have posted is nothing short of fascinating and a valuable account of film making in the sixties.

    Keep up the good work, Stephen. A lot of the information is very useful for my 'Sixties Diary' (PC version) and production notes I've compiled for many favourite films. As the future of the Forum is regularly questioned, I have already made sure your perfect scans have been saved to various folders. The photographs may seem ordinary to others but they continue to amaze me, including that one of Albert Finney directing Liza Minnelli in (my beloved) Charlie Bubbles. A wonderful discovery.

    Thank you for all you've done so far. I can do my bit to keep threads like these going with contemporary newspaper articles on films that were In Production (e.g. the fight scene in The Pumpkin Eater, for 1963). By the way, I'll be watching episode two of From a Bird's Eye View tonight, which I know you worked on.

    The importance of discussions on Britmovie such as on this thread is not so much the interest it records as far as viewing numbers is concerned, but the interest it creates with subsequent further information for other members and also (!) for new readers out there who happen to get directed here on Google.

    Some of us are undoubtedly still engrossed in the last posting, or spending time as below seeking stats or recollections to go with the films and TV programmes featured. For instance, following the progress of three productions featured most recently, unfortunately most of my Charlie Bubbles and Penthouse memorabilia happens to be stored otherwise, but regarding their life in the public domain is recorded:-

    Charlie Bubbles
    First released Odeon St.Martins Lane London September 19-October 30, 1968
    No subsequent programmed General Release.

    The Penthouse
    London first showing not recorded on IMDB but first released at the art-nouveau Curzon, Mayfair September 25,1968
    Selected Release ABC Circuit thereafter only, recorded November 3 and/or December 1, 1968 via the familiar London portals of the ABC's Edgware Road and Fulham Road. Publicity to the general public generated by the June 1968 ABC film review here featured, although mention of The Penthouse made by Peter Collinson the director in an interview that February 'it has a message that must be said'. 'Up the Junction', Collinson's other Paramount feature which was apparently completed after The Penthouse', was released in the April maybe to warm audiences up to The Penthouse and the forthcoming 'Long Day's Dying'

    The Magnificent Two
    West End release Leicester Square Theatre for two-week booking July 13-26, 1967 (followed by The Long Duel)
    General Release (as depicted) from 6 August 1967.

    Stephen -

    I've not been about for a while, but am always glad to see your contributions. These vintage pages are always fascinating. Please don't give up - unless scanning becomes a chore, of course.

    Much appreciated.

    If anybody is having trouble reading any of the text please let me know and I will re-scan some of the double pages individually.
    Hopefully the zoom feature will work.
