    Hi



    Anybody have any of the 1960's series 'Misleading Cases' starring Alastair Sim, I think 19 episodes were made.



    cheers

    Hi,

    I have been looking for this series for years without luck.

    I'm pretty certain several episodes have been destroyed but I also believe that there are at least two episodes in existance on 16mm film.

    Thanks to a kindly BM member I just managed to get hold of a couple of episodes of this one Is Britain a Free Country? (S01E06, 1967) and The Usual Channel (S03E01, 1971). I wonder if anyone might have more? Plenty of TV/Film to swap, please PM me if interested. Thanks

    There's an extract from what appears to be one of them that's included in a documentary about Alastair.



    He's been out on the razzle the night before and has been quite a naughty magistrate. He's telling himself off with a stern look into the mirror, wagging his finger, asking whose fault it was. The finger slowly stops wagging and turns to point back at him where he adopts a hang-dog expression wsith his finger in the corner of his mouth. A beautiful piece of work
