I missed the first hour of "A Very Important Person" so didn't bother although it looked good from the cast.

Do they repeat them often? Is there an advance guide?

I see that Gideon's Way is on at 9 too.

"Naked Fury" (1959)

Renamed "The Pleasure Lovers" - WHY?!?! By the Yanks (Grrr Angy ), as that title bears absolutely no relationship to the film and starring Reed De Rouen (yes, that's what I thought - Who?).

The only person of any note was Kenneth Cope as a nasty villain, and apart from one who was arrested, it was certainly a different way to kill the rest of them off.

"Impulse" (1954)

Same title in America (hooray!); but a stupid story imo.

"IMDb storyline :-

An American realtor living in England is dissatisfied with what he believes to be his humdrum life. One weekend while his wife is out of town, he gives a ride to a woman he sees stranded on the road. One thing leads to another, and he soon finds himself enmeshed in a plot involving a diamond robbery, gangsters and murder."

OK, he was seemingly stuck in a dead end job with a token wife, but any sane person wouldn't have let it get out of hand as he did, for e.g. just handing over his car keys to a young women in a weird sense of duty so she could help sort out her supposed "brother" who was in some sort of bother.

I actually muttered "Why doesn't he give her the deeds to his house as well" Nah, too far-fetched.
Lead actor Arthur Kennedy I vaguely recognised, and did these English ones in uncredited parts :-

Michael Balfour, Kenneth Cope (again), and the ubiquitous Sam Kydd (of course!)

I don't know. Have you not read of these people who meet someone on an internet dating site (never actually meeting in person) and proceed to lend them their life savings?

No, it's a term used in the TV/film drama industry.

Characters in a scripted drama are called actors - because they are acting.

However, it is not unusual to see a person appearing "as himself" in such a drama. Such a person is not acting and is therefore not called an actor: he is known as a realtor because he's being real.

Famous realtors from years gone by are Prince Charles in Coronation Street and, on separate occasions, Ken Dodd and Bob Monkhouse in Crossroads.

I thank you.

Realtor:

In law, there are two types of property: real and personal.

I once took a young lady solicitor out to dinner and afterwards when I tried to get personal she told me to get real.

Story of my life. :(

It wasn't me. IF you had read the post correctly, you would have noticed that I was copy/paste quoting from the IMDb, which despite being founded by two Englishmen, has been taken over by the Yanks.

I totally agree, I hate to see American words/phrases creeping in on this forum; BUT I wish you would read posts properly and not just scan them and then give a knee jerk reaction! It is very annoying!!
