King for a day

After a somewhat self-destructive and unproductive weekend, I find myself short of completed material to post today. I had planned a post on Peter Wyngarde’s hand prints (hence the title of this post – Jason King being the character that Wyngarde is most closely associated with). In the early 1970′s Wyngarde came to Melbourne, and [...]

Jason King: A Deadly Line in Digits (1971)

Country: United Kingdom Director: Jeremy Summers Starring: Peter Wyngarde, Donald Houston, Dennis Price, Joanna Jones, Freddie Jones, Ronald Lacey Music: Laurie Johnson I find the Jason King television series to be a big step down from Department S, with too much time showing Jason King being, well Jason King, rather than solving crime.

The Avengers: Epic (1967)

Country: United KingdomDirector: James HillStarring: Diana Rigg, Patrick Macnee, Peter Wyngarde, Isa Miranda, Kenneth J. Warren, David Lodge, Anthony DawesMusic: Laurie Johnson Epic is a bizarre little episode in The Avengers. Although there is a simple plot, the way it unfolds is not very linear and confusing. It’s meant to be that way. We are [...]

The Prisoner: Checkmate (1967)

Country: United Kingdom Director: Don Chaffey Starring: Patrick McGoohan, Peter Wyngarde, Ronald Radd, Patricia Jessel, Rosalie Crutchley, Angelo Muscat Music: Ron Grainer The Prisoner is so much more than this overview of one episode in the series can convey. But to put it simply, The Prisoner is a psychedelic super spy series. Patrick McGoohan plays [...]
