Smith and Jones the police interrogation. Makes me cry with laughter.

The one that never fails with me, is when they are sitting in a parked police car in the countryside, and a car comes zooming along in front of them, skids and crashes into a hedge, then reverses and drives off erratically.....................

Then one of them says to the other "I bet he drinks Carling Black Label"

Laughing out loud

Last night watched Steve Coogan being interviewed by Armando Iannuchi in front of an audience, when Cameron was still PM. Also Coogan and his co-writer of Saxondale chatting to camera. Very illuminating on their way of working, which involves meticulous, even nit-picking, planning and analysis of their characters. A fair bit of false modesty and smugness, which perhaps they're entitled to.

Yes, remarkable, and I'm surprised it is not done more often as it improves the film enormously, especially with the colourising.

There's was a documentary done couple of years ago where they did the same treatment on WWI battlefield films, going one step further by adding a soundtrack, estimating what the men were saying. It was incredible........or did I dream that.
I have a recording of it on DVD - I'll have to dig it out.

Ah, here we are - a promo clip. "They Shall Not Grow Old" by Peter Jackson. Superb!! Truly brings history to life.

Though, I can't stand the colourised L & H films.

Absolutely - it ruins them. As they did with the Alistair Sim "Scrooge" film. WHY. It took all the atmosphere out of it.
