    Thank you Buffalo and Moor. It is comforting, and rewarding to get a pat on the back after all these years.

    It gets better. A friend has, just today, sent me a transcription of a review from 'Variety', stemming from an American broadcast. I had mentioned to him some while ago that I had heard of the review, but never read it:



    THE BIG KNIFE



    With Patrick McGoohan, Louise Allbritton, Paul Carpenter, Maggie Smith, James Clark, Mavis Villiers, Martin Miller, Eric Pohlman, Alfred Burke, Daphne Anderson, Phil Brown



    Writer: Clifford Odets

    TV adaption: Ken Hoare

    Director: John Moxey

    90 Mins., Tues., 8:30 p.m.

    Associated-Rediffusion, from London



    Credit for a remarkably good television presentation of this powerful play goes to Ken Hoare who did a stand out job adapting it for the medium and to a first rate cast which brought the pieces vividly to life. Under the guidance of director John Moxey, "The Big Knife" was a fine production mounted expertly in a grand setting by John Clements. The presentation can hardly be faulted on any count and must be ranked as one of the gems of British tele-drama.



    Acting was maintained at a high standard by the entire cast but special mention must be made of the performances by Patrick McGoohan as Charles Castle, the movie star with a load of problems, and Louise Allbritton as his wife. Two other notables were Martin Miller (Nat Danziger) and Maggie Smith (Dixie Evans).

    Bary.




    I assume Bary was the reviewer's pen-name.



    What a shame no-one managed to 'preserve' these things, but I always feel that reading an original review like that gives them a real freshness. I thought you might enjoy reading it, if you never got a copy of the magazine at the time....



    I promise not to pester your Thread anymore.....

    I remember PG, in one of the few on camera interviews I have seen him give, mentioning that production so it must have made an impact.

    I have only just discovered that the US actor Darren McGavin had died a couple of years ago. Darren starred in what is IMHO the scariest TV movie ever made, The Night Stalker, directed by John Llewellyn Moxey.

    I knew Mr. McGavin had moved on, but I didn't realise that second connection (I really must study at imdb more!). I concur about Night Stalker. I had been a Dracula fan, from watching Bela Lugosi, but that show gave the whole concept a transfusion of new ideas....... and it was scary!

    That's probably him. A good operator, and fun to work with. Perhaps you would pass on the address. It would be nice to send a message to his family.

    All the best John

    Hello John,



    I have just watched the excellent Strangler's Web directed by your good self.



    I was intrigued by the amazing house that Griffith Jones' character lived in.



    Do you remember where it was, who really lived in it and anything about it's history?



    Many thanks,



    Bats.

    Hi John



    The film is superb, I really enjoyed it ..... especially the scenes with John Stratton in the speeding car and going to a 'disco'.



    The house was a huge dark looking building .... there was a scene where they had tea in the garden. It appeared as if the interiors were filmed on location, but of course it may have been a different house. The interior had a large central staircase and rooms filled with leather chairs and paintings.



    All the best,



    Bats.

    Your age, according to IMDB is surprising



    Was Margaret Lockwood nice to work with?



    And how was Coronation Street?

    It never fails to surprise me too! (The picture on my profile is staggering)



    I was only a Third Assistant Director on that film, but she was always very friendly.

    I looked through your long list of credits - on both sides of the Atlantic - and there are so many series that were popular here in the 70s and 80s. You directed several episodes of Murder She Wrote and Matlock.



    What was it like to direct and work with Angela Lansbury and Andy Griffith?

    Angela was great to work with. A very talented and lovely lady. Andy Griffith was a little different! It turned out he was not too fond of the British. Ah well, it takes all sorts.

    Doug is one of the best. We became good friends. I spoke to him on the phone a few days ago. He sounded great.

    John
    I think the Doug McClure the other Phil is referring to died in 1995. So unless you have a very special and unique phone you might be thinking of someone else... This is the guy:
