    As I understand it, Harry Andrews last piece of work on film was a T.V. play about a scientist who discovered that trees feel pain and cry out if hit with an axe. This he tries to prove to different people without success and it eventually drives him insane.

    PLEASE, has anyone got a copy of this. I would love to add it to my collection.

    I have looked at IMDB but I don't recognise it from their list.

    Anybody else want the Ealing documentary? Let me know.

    This sounds very much like one of Roald Dahl's short stories, in which case the TV play could be on one of the TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED compilations which are available on video.

    I found "THE INTERNECINE PROJECT" 1974 on the end of an old tape I must have recorded years ago. Harry Andrews plays Albert Parsons a masseur who has a hatred for woman and gets his head smashed in by hammer wielding diabetic Alex Hellman played by Ian Hendry. Not your average political thriller plot but a cracking film none the less. Ken Huges directs the fine European cast, e.g Rolf Wanka as the art dealer who's acting is better than his name would imply, headed for the US market by James Colburn. Great acting by all but stealing every scene he's in is dear old Harry.

    A bit off subject, but whenever I'm reading a novel which requires a spit-and-polish British sergeant-major, I always think of Harry Andrews.
