Filming those Scenes

  I love to see how these films are made and this series of pictures from the very early fifties gives us an insight,

 

Whilst I know the Scrooge film which is an absolute classic – and to me by far the best version – you just could not follow Alistair Sim   -  I am not at all familiar with the other two films ‘No Resting Place’ and ‘The Womans Angle’ and dontb think I have ever seen them – nor even until recently not known of them

ABOVE  Preparing a scene that we all know.  The brilliant Alistair Sim as Scrooge – towards the end of the film when Scrooge has just become kind and generous following his meetings with the Ghost of Christmas Past – and the one that he feared the most – The Ghost of Christmas to come

Filming No Resting Place in Ireland

 

A rare starring role from Michael Gough in ‘No Resting Place’ – as an Irish tinker who having accidentally killed a gamekeeper is pursued by a policeman nearing retirement – shot  on location in Ireland, good. Worth seeing for Michael Gough fans, and the good location photography in Ireland

Filming The Womans Angle 1951

 

Filming The Womans Angle 1952 – BELOW Edward Underdown starred in the long forgotten drama directed by Leslie Arliss.

American actress Cathy O’Donnell also has a leading role  and Anton Diffring  is seen briefly as an Alpine dancer, looking as if he’s thoroughly enjoying himself.

In one review of this film there was a quote as follows :- Great as it is to see lots more British films of this vintage becoming available, in this case it is no surprise it languished unseen and forgotten for sixty years.
