    No, it's not very funny, I agree. But it did have Sarah Branch in it and seeing her in Technicolor was worth the 1/9d admission (about 7 pence in today's money...you won't get into a cinema for that much these days).

    I understand that Network intends releasing the Aldwych Farces. Does anybody know the complete list of titles they intend to include?

    Technically 1/9 in 1960 was worth between �1.81 and �4.89 now - still short of most cinema tickets, but a lot more than 8.75p.

    I've sent for Nor the Moon by Night today. It was posted to me today and I should have it by Wednesday, if not tomorrow. Next Monday, when it's released, I shall be buying the long awaited Look at Life volume 7 - Business and Industry.

    These two films are definitely on my wants lists. Three cheers for NETWORK.

    Another excuse for me to upload from my collection of quad posters the UK quad posters for CHAIN OF EVENTS (1958) and DEAD LUCKY (1960)

    I must presume that someone has seen 'Chain of Events' and wonder if it's set in London? Does the skipped bus fare take place on London Transport?

    Thanks.

    I've not seen the film as yet (but will, looks like my cuppa), but I can see from the poster the interior of the Bus is an AEC Regent, so I would think they would have hired one from LT, irony is these days Buses in London don't take money any more !

    An AEC Regent? The standard London double decker bus of the fifties was the RT, based on AEC Regent running gear but very much a bespoke LT product. There were 6,000 of them (though not all in service at the same time) and they outnumbered the more famous Routemaster (introduced in 1959, around 2,500 built) throughout the sixties as well.

    There were also RTLs and RTWs and of course there was also the trolleybus,the successor o the tram.Trouble was the connection often became detached so the conductor had to extract a long pole from the rear of the vehicle to reconnect it.Not surprising that they didn't last long.

    RT does stand for Regent, doesn't it ?

    It is, being a moderate transport anorak, I attend vintage bus running days if I'm able to.

    Ok can I add my penny-worth here? sorry for the non bus people on here..
    RT followed on from the T, ST LT, and STL. The first new generation of buses in 1929 started with the AEC Regal which was a T then the double deckers that came first were the ST and LT, ST (SHORT T) had 2 axles and LT (LONG T) had three axles due to the restrictions on length in the 1930's. the ST was allowed to be 25 foot long where as the LT was 30 foot long, and hence more seats. Later in the 30's the regulations regarding vehicle lengths were changed and this allowed a 2 axle bus to be longer which is why the STL (SHORT T LONG) was built... are you with me so far? when the new bus was being planned the classification was RT which stood for REVISED T. It wasn't generally known as a Regent Three till after it entered service. Of course there were the RT variants RTL (Revised T Leyland) and RTW (Revised T Wide) 8 foot wide instead of 7 foot 6 inches, and the one and only RTC (Revised T Coach) which was rebuilt from RT97.

    I might add I still act as a bus conductor on these on the Epping Ongar railway shuttles.
